Clinton, Obama, Edwards, Richardson, Biden, Dodd, and Kucinich
They’re all Democrats running for President.
The focus of the media coverage so far seems to be on the top three contenders, Clinton, Obama, and Edwards.Ã‚Â It is no secret that I am currently supporting John Edwards. However, after reviewing Senator Edwards ideas for Health Care in this country, I figured I should see what the other candidates had to say.
I was a bit surprised to find that Hillary Clinton has no specific plans for Health Care. In fact, I could not find any section of her website that stated anything specific about issues or plan on how to address them.Ã‚Â Please, look for yourselves. HEREÃ‚Â If you can find something specific (like an issues page), please let me know.
Barack Obama, for all the hype that surrounds him, at least has an issues page. HERE But the page is slim on specifics and talks a good game about the problems of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.Ã‚Â I couldn’t however find anything that covered the issue of universal health care coverage.
After my review, I still believe that John Edwards has the better grasp of the issues facing this county and how to move us forward.Ã‚Â I also know that there are many liberals out there that will disagree with me.Ã‚Â To those people and the others that have yet to make up your minds, I invite you to visit the candidates websites and see for yourself where they stand on the issues important to you.
Selecting a Presidential nominee for 2008 should not be just a popularity contest.Ã‚Â We need to select a nominee who can bring this country together to address our problems at home, so that we can strengthen our moral leadership in the world.
