Obama To Maine to Talk HCR

So says The New York Times:

The White House announced that President Obama would step up his defense of the law with a trip next week to Maine.

Representative Chellie Pingree, Democrat of Maine, strongly supported the legislation, as did many of her constituents. But aides to Ms. Pingree predicted that the president would be greeted by some protesters. The senators from Maine, Susan Collins and Olympia J. Snowe, both Republicans, voted against the legislation, and Ms. Snowe delivered a blistering critique of it on the Senate floor this week.
Sounds delicious. But one wonders why he didn't make this trip months ago.
