From NBC's Kelly O'Donnell and Mark Murray
Senior aides told NBC News that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid planned to only call on those Democrats running this November to pose questions to President Obama at his meeting today with Senate Democrats. Reid said he had received questions from members in advance.
Those who asked questions: Arlen Specter (PA), Michael Bennet (CO), Blanche Lincoln (AR), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Pat Leahy (VT), Sherrod Brown (OH), and Evan Bayh (IN).
All but Brown are up for election this year. And Leahy is the only one who's running this year who doesn't face a serious challenge.
Reid, of course, is up for re-election too, and might be the cycle's most vulnerable incumbent.
