Obama gives major health speech

Correspondents say Mr Barack Obama will use the speech to regain the initiative on healthcare, after a summer dominated by opponents.
Passing a healthcare reform bill is Mr Obama's best policy priority for 2009.
The House of Representatives looks set to pass a bill, but US senators have yet to agree on the particulars of reform.
Although Mr Obama has given a lot of speeches on healthcare reform at town hall meetings throughout the US, his address to Congress will be his most high-profile intervention in the healthcare debate since he entered the White House.
Mr Obama made a strategic decision to let lawmakers take the lead on drafting a healthcare bill, and urge each house of congress to pass a bill before the beginning of August.
