President Barack Obama on Sunday underscored a push for a bipartisan solution to health reform, setting a Feb. 25 date for a policy summit with Democrats and Republicans alike in an effort to break a legislative impasse on Capitol Hill. “I want to ask them to put their ideas on the table, and then after the (President’s Day) recess, which will be a few weeks away, I want to come back and have a large meeting, the Republicans and Democrats, to go through systematically all the best ideas that are out there and move it forward,” Obama told CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric during an interview that aired before the Super Bowl.
