    Hillary wins big on health care, she has the background and experience on this issue and knows what she is saying and doing! We need universal coverage in this country!

    You can cap premiums but the doctors just won't do the work. The entire system needs to be fixed

    HILLARY YOU MAKE ME SICK! Who's going to pay for all of your non-sense? And what public career have you had? You've been Bill's punching bag for years.

    All I am hearing is dollar signs and bigger govt. I can't aford to watch this, I have to earn the money to pay for all of the "free" stuff from their new changed govt. Getting ready to turn it off, then flip a coin.......John or Mitt here we come!

    Great start for Obama. Its about time someone clearly broke down the differences and gave their complete answer about the issues.

    The Clinton machine is very good about being vague.

    Please have Senator Clinton explain her 35 years of experince. I have over forty years of following American politics but this doesn't qualify me for anything.

    Hillary is by far the better of the two candidates, but even she does not hold a candle to Ron Paul or Mike Huckabee.

    They're going to jab... you wait.... the jabs are coming. They're playing nicely right now, but wait.

    Clinton's heathcare plan is superior to Obama's.

    Are we electing the next person to lead USA or are we electing the leader of the leader of the strongest country in the world (A World Leader)?

    hm... mandated insurance with governmental subsidary for the poor. Sounds like Romney's plan

    I think a Clinton-Obama ticket would be a sure winner!! I'm really coming around to that idea.

    Barack looks like he's sucking on lemons whenever Hillary talks. Maybe he should listen a little more to what she is saying. She makes a lot of sense. Universal Health care is number 1 on my list.

    Sorry, I want cahnge. And Hillary's 30 plus years in politics is the opposite of what this country needs.

    I would love to hear Hillary tell us how much a family could expect her health care to cost them. I understand she wants to cover everyone... but how much will that coverage cost? That's what determines who can or cannot afford it.

    how come no one asks hillary, why should we hire you a second time to fix health care when you failed the first time with a democratic congress and your husband as president?
