From NPR News in Washington, I'm Lakshmi Singh.

President Obama is on Capitol Hill, attending a Democratic pep rally of sorts ahead of tomorrow s landmark health care vote in the House. This debate has been a difficult debate. This process has been a difficult process. And this year has been a difficult year for the American people. Democratic leaders say despite some holdouts still over abortion language, they have the commitment of enough members to pass this bill. However, tomorrow there won t be just one vote on health care. As NPR s Julie Rovner reports three are on the line.

In order to get the health overhaul finished House Democrats were going to use something called the self-executing rule to allow members to vote indirectly on the bill the Senate passed in December. Many House members dislike major portions of the Senate bill. But thanks to a favorable ruling from the parliamentarian, now the House can vote on the Senate bill after it vote on a bill to make changes to that measure. So tomorrow showdown vote will consist of three votes instead of two. One on the rule to structure the debate, one on the bill with the changes to the Senate bill and one on the Senate bill itself. That will take away a key source of criticism from Republicans. They have called the plan for the self-executing rule also known as deem and pass, an abuse of House roles. Julie Rovner, NPR News, the Capitol.

Pope Benedict XVI is apologizing today to survivors of child abuse by Irish clergy members. NPR s Rob Gifford reports the pontiff is also accusing bishops of committing grave errors in the way they dealt with allegations of abuse.

In a pastoral letter to Irish catholics, Pope Benedict acknowledged the sense of betrayal felt by victims and their families. Addressing the victims he wrote you have suffered grievously and I am truly sorry. Your trust has been betrayed and your dignity violated, he went on, And I openly express the shame and remorse that we all feel. the Pope also said there have been serious mistakes made by Irish bishops in responding to allegations of pedophilia. Ireland s main group of cleric abuse victims said it was deeply disappointed by the letter because it failed to lay blame with the Vatican for what it called a deliberate policy of the church s highest levels to protect sex offenders. The letter addressed only Ireland, but the Vatican said it could be ready supplying to other countries. Hundreds of new allegations of abuse have recently come to light across Europe. Rob Gifford, NPR News, London.

Thousands of people across Russia protesting the government's economic policies. They are also calling for Prime Minister Vladimir Putin s resignation. Rallies have been held in several cities including Saint Petersburg. There have been no immediate reports of violence. Meanwhile, anti-war protests were held across the US today. People were marking the 7th anniversary, the start of the Iraq war. You are listening to NPR News.

The streets of Bangkok are again crowded with tens of thousands of protestors calling for new elections, many of them wearing red shirts to show support for ousted former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. This was the latest in a series of mass demonstrations in the Thai capital. Activists are vowing to keep protesting until new elections are held.

Residents in Fargo, North Dakota, nearby Moorhead, Minnesota are breathing a little easier today after hearing that the Red River may not crest tomorrow morning as high as expected. The National Weather Service is predicting the water will rise around 37 feet that still about 19 feet above flood stage. . . Paul. L says the situation is unpredictable. "Right now we got the river at almost the highest point and it is going to be there for a while. We need to do, you know, we need to . . the rain we got under snow storms and that are something we had to be cautious another rainfall so right now it s quite clear we will not work it out right now. " More details from Minnesota Public Radio s A. A.

Local state and federal agencies reported they had more time to prepare and train for the flood disaster. They arrived early to get familiar with the flood train. Officials also say they are communicating better among one another. The National

Weather Service expects water levels to decline more quickly than they originally expected. Flooding could continue to threaten homes and roads for much of next week. Fargo officials report no leaks or breaches in the temporary levees and dikes as flood water continues to rise slowly. About 800 National Guard troops are on duty in the Red River Valley for flood support. That's . . reporting.
