He will be making Dem Senators offers they cannot refuse.IEVote for us and we give your state this and that. Do not vote with us and I we tell your wife about your mistress.Vote for us and we will pay back later with a favor. Vote against us on health care and we will destroy you anyway we can.
The only thing the President can do to sway legislators is to promise to lobby for them with other legislators, or to sign or veto bills he otherwise might not.If they respond to anything else, it's not him doing the persuasion, it's them, due to their greed or fear.
