Ten House Democrats say they have not ruled out the possibility of switching their earlier "no" votes to "yes" on the big health care overhaul. That's giving Democrats a glimmer of hope in the face of unyielding Republican opposition. The House members commented in interviews Monday with The Associated Press.

The White House, meanwhile, is trying to create an encouraging atmosphere for lawmakers to make such a change. For example, the Obama administration is making a point of saying that Democrats are not using parliamentary tricks or loopholes to find the needed support in Congress.

The White House says President Barack Obama will outline his final "way forward" on health care in a Washington speech Wednesday.
