After giving remarks about health care, President Obama said he'd take only one question because he doesn't "want the whole day to just be a bleeding press conference."

"I'm going to take one question and then remember people are going to have opportunities to also answer questions when I'm with the Chinese president today," said Obama. "So I don't want the whole day to just be a bleeding press conference. But I'm going to take Jackie Calmes's question."
