President Barack Obama is making another push for the economic stimulus plan being debated in the Senate, saying that with stakes so high, the nation can't afford the "same partisan gridlock."

As he announced the choice of New Hampshire Sen. Judd Gregg to be commerce secretary, Obama vowed Tuesday to act "swiftly" but "wisely" to deal with the nation's economic troubles.

Addressing concerns that the stimulus plan wouldn't have an immediate impact, Obama said the "vast majority" of investments would be made in the next 18 months.

And he said the public would be able to track every bit of the spending on the Internet.

He said it's time for Congress to act "with the same sense of urgency Americans feel every day."
