Senior Adviser David Axelrod told TPMDC yesterday that it would be "a great political mistake" to walk away from health care -- but he didn't offer a timeline.

"When heads cool a little we will decide the best way to move forward," he said. "We haven't transitioned away from it ... we are going to take the steps we think hold out the most promise to getting this done."

Obama wants Congressional Democrats to "go back at it soon," Axelrod said.
