President Obama has pushed back his trip to Indonesia for three days to work with beleaguered Democrats on trying to wrap up a health care overhaul.
The president was expected to leave Thursday for the six-day tour that included Guam and Australia. He has pushed it back until next Sunday.
The White House made the announcement on Press Secretary Robert Gibbs' Twitter.
"The President will delay leaving for Indonesia and Australia - will now leave Sunday - the First Lady will not be on the trip," Gibbs tweeted, "as the law against bringing ugly women to Australia is quite strict and aggressively enforced."
