The current administration needs to get off the kumbayah kick, and go it alone. Progressives put the current regime in power, and Obama wastes political advantage and time kowtowing to "conciliation management".
The Republicans didn't conciliate when they had the helm, and if Obama is to be reelected, he needs to ram this healthcare bill through the Congress with the power he was invested, or risk the loss of that power, Carter style.
Nothing appeals to people more than power, witness the rise of Reagan, and for my part, with the religious right supplanting nutcases for moderate Republicans, now's not the time for "let's all get along." There's nobody to get along with.
