Earlier this year, the health care struggles of young Marcelas Owens and his family came to the attention of Patty Murray, who then brought Marcelas's story to the attention of President Obama, who then invited Marcelas to the White House for the signing of the historic health care reform bill (which Rossi is now promising to repeal as he tries to unseat Murray).

Fittingly, Owens is here tonight at the Westin, waiting to see what happens to Murray.

As for what Owens thinks of the president these days, he's staying more positive than a lot of Americans. "I think he's doing a good job," Owens said. "He's still cleaning up all the mess that Bush left."
