Facing mounting opposition to the overhaul, administration officials left open the chance for a compromise with Republicans that would include health
insurance cooperatives instead of a government-run plan. Such a concession probably would enrage Obama's liberal supporters but could deliver a
much-needed victory on a top domestic priority opposed by GOP lawmakers.
