As political theater goes it doesn't get any better than the drama building on Capitol Hill this weekend. Democratic leaders have been working non-stop to gather enough votes in the House of Representatives to pass the Senate's health care reform bill, as Republicans waged their own battle to defeat it. Late this afternoon Democratic leaders announced they have the votes in hand and can go forward with a straight up and down vote sometime on Sunday. Still, the president made a quick trip to the Hill to try and cement those votes. On his way over, the president got a glimpse of some of the Tea Party protesters who came out in big numbers to lobby right-leaning Democrats to vote no. We'll have full coverage on Nightly News, including a look at the provisions of the bill itself and why even if it is passed tomorrow, change would come slowly.
Also on the broadcast tonight, we'll report why police in one southern California community now find themselves the targets of domestic terrorism. We'll also go back to Iraq with NBC's Richard Engel as he marks the 7th anniversary of the American invasion with a look at how the war has changed Baghdad.
We'll look for you tonight for NBC Nightly News.
