Elizabeth Edwards Backs Clinton Health Care Plan

In an interview airing on Wednesday with “Good Morning America’s” Robin Roberts, Elizabeth Edwards “said she believed Clinton’s health care plan was more inclusive than that of the Illinois senator.” Edwards recently “began work as a senior fellow at the liberal think tank, the Center for American Progress.”

You need that universality in order to get the cost savings … I just have more confidence in Sen. Clinton’s policy than Sen. Obama’s on this particular issue,” she said.

Edwards also said she “thought letting the race end at the convention was a good idea.”

I don’t actually think it’s a bad idea to have an open convention, where we actually got to hash out what the differences [between the candidates] were and how important they are,” she said.

She “discounted the idea of her husband, John, accepting a place as either candidate’s running mate” and said she “liked the idea of Clinton and Obama running together on a so-called dream ticket.”

If you like the idea of the “dream ticket” — sign the petition to let the DNC know.


Taylor Marsh has more on Vote Both. Personally… I’ll take the “dream ticket” any day!
