Clinton Solid on Health Care
Few candidates know as much about health care as Clinton and she just showed off her knowledge.
"This is the passionate cause of my public service," said Clinton before launching into an extended explanation of why she believes her plan is superior to Obama's.
Obama questioned Clinton's ability to ensure those who can't afford health care will be included, insisting that her plan did not answer that question.
Clinton, politely, pushed back -- noting that her plan "has been designed to be affordable" and condemning as a half measure anything short of calling for universal health care. "We as Democrats have to fight for universal health care," she said. "If you don't say you will consider universal health care, you will be nibbled to death."
While this is clearly Clinton's wheelhouse, Obama scored some points of his own, noting that he would have open hearing broadcasts on C-SPAN (a reference he insisted was not aimed at Clinton) and cast it as part of his broad belief in making government more transparent.
