New Clinton Health Care Ad

Just as President Bush vetoes the S-CHIP bill, Hillary Clinton starts airing a new ad in Iowa and New Hampshire about her health care proposals.

The latest Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 66 percent of Democrats trust her most to handle the health care issue, compared with 15 percent for Barack Obama and 14 percent for John Edwards. A general consensus that health care is a leading domestic issue, and a new push by Congressional Democrats to get enough GOP votes to override the president's S-CHIP veto, means health care will be in the news for weeks to come.

The ad highlights Clinton's consistency on the health care issue, remindng viewers that she pushed for universal health care in the 1990s, and advocated for better health care for Ground Zero rescue workers, National Guard members, and Reservists.

"So now that almost every candidate is standing up for health care for all, which one do you think will never back down?" the announcer asks.
