President Obama's Vacation Contingent on Health Care Vote

President Obama may delay his Christmas vacation to Hawaii until later in the week due to the Senate vote on health care.   The President will make a decision Tuesday evening about the need to stay in Washington while the Senate debates pending health care legislation.  President Obama told reporters he won't leave on vacation until "my friends in the Senate have completed their work. My attitude is if they are making these sacrifices to provide health care to all Americans, the least I can do is be around and provide them any encouragement and last-minute help" they may need.

The First Family is scheduled to leave Wednesday to spend their holiday vacation in Oahu.
