AUSTIN, Texas (CNN) - Clinton clearly feels she can gain ground against Obama on healthcare.
Despite the moderator's repeated attempt to move on, Clinton kept returning to the issue.
She knows Obama is most on the defensive when talking about healthcare - she understands this issue through and through, and wants the audience to know it.

Hilary already failed with healthcare before and never tried again. She did not redo her strategy and come back for the American people. Why believe she would be diligent now?
Yes healthcare is a very importanat issue, but is that all she has, which is why she wont move on.... Oh no..war.
Obama doesn't know what he is talking about
Bill Schneider – you continue to display unabashed bias towards Obama.... its getting quite old
Clinton looks foolish and desperate. Is she really arguing about a bogus plagurism charge? Unreal. More of this same with this retread.
Healthcare seems to be the only thing Clinton knows which is why she keeps harping on it. Whereas Obama has more breadth and depth on many fronts.
I think they both understand the issue and she had 8 years with her husband in the White House to do something about it, but didn't.
Of course she wants to keep the focus here. She's right!
schneider, guess we know your bias. becoming more and more obvious over the last hour... and it ain't for hillary.
Both looked foolish when they kept trying to bring it back up lol... but so far I'd give the edge to Obama, my vote is swaying towards him when I vote here later in Texas
She is stuck on pandering to illegals.
If I am not mistaken, we live in a democratic society....so what makes Clinton think that she can FORCE any adult American to purchase healthcare for themselves if they don't want to? We live in a world of choice not force........
HRC IS GBH GO BACK HOME U ARE DONE
Fortunately, he's not fooled. He's moved the conversation into HIS comfort zone – Iraq.
Hillary, give it up. it's over.
- a very concerned Canadian
She ought to understand it. She spent enough time trying to make something happen 15 years ago and we are still dealing with the results of her "solutions."
she doesn't address medicare restrictions on hospitals this could sink hospitals
Clinton is making herself look very bad by suggestion that Obama would leave 15million behind. That the only issue she can even debate well. Obama is clearly winning the debate.
Clinton was not the only one going back to the subject.
Actually she seemed desperate.
Hillary knows universal health care, but she looks childish by going back to it when she was asked another question
Am glad she held her own there and forced the issue back on
Hillary: Healthcare Healthcare Healthcare Healthcare HealthcareHealthcareHealthcareHealthcareHealthcareHealthcare
Moderator: The question was on Iraq
Hillary: Healthcare Healthcare??
Why does it seem that each question goes to Clinton first? I would like to see Obama have to answer first, without letting him listen to her and then think of his response.
I agree Bill but the fact that she won't leave it alone....especially when asked, makes her look somewhat desperate to gain some ground.
This was one of her strongest moments – she fought for herself and for an important issue.
