New White House Health-Care Video -- 'The Obama Plan in 4 Minutes'

By Ceci Connolly
It may seem as though President Obama is shifting his attention to foreign affairs this week, but the administration doesn't want anyone to forget about the centerpiece of its domestic policy agenda. Senior White House adviser David Axelrod, in one of his e-mail missives to the Democratic faithful, writes Monday that Team Obama has put together a handy video summing up the president's health-care proposal.

"Four minutes -- that's all you need to learn just what you get from health insurance reform," Axelrod says. The note reprises the White House mantra of "security and stability" to urge supporters to get behind the legislative push.

"As the President says, now is the time to deliver the change we need on health care," according to the letter. "Forward this e-mail and make sure your family, friends and social networks take four minutes and watch this video."
