Anybody hear what I heard???

I've not read every current thread on DU (I confess, I can't since I don't have THAT kind of idle time!), but I heard something from HRC in her "victory" speech last night that made me roll it back for an instant replay. She said at one point that she was going to win so she could bring about the reality of "universal health care!". Tell me if I'm wrong, but that seems to sound WAY different than "well fix Obamacare and make it better" - or am I dreaming? Wouldn't Medicare for all be the same thing as Universal Health Care???

Like I said: tell me if I just read it wrong. Seems to me she's shifted to Bernie's aims after being battered with the "No You Can't!" taunts. If they ARE the same thing, gonna be interesting to see how that topic squares when their in the next debate.

Somebody clue me please....

From Dictionaries.com: LIBERAL

adjective:

1.
favorable to progress or reform, as in political or religious affairs.
2.
(often initial capital letter) noting or pertaining to a political party advocating measures of progressive political reform.
3.
of, pertaining to, based on, or advocating liberalism, especially the freedom of the individual and governmental guarantees of individual rights and liberties.
4.
favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.
5.
favoring or permitting freedom of action, especially with respect to matters of personal belief or expression:
a liberal policy toward dissident artists and writers.
6.
of or relating to representational forms of government rather than aristocracies and monarchies.
7.
free from prejudice or bigotry; tolerant:

Which of these seven definitions are approved for use on DU? I need to be taught how to be a Liberal.
