37. I don't really like Obama's plan.

I want single payer.

BUT, I do realize that her selling of the plan was godawful.

From Time Magazine, 1993:

And despite occasional press leaks, the First Lady, assigned by the President to oversee health reform, jealously guarded the full text of the proposal.

Until last Thursday. On that day, Mrs. Clinton visited Capitol Hill to persuade key Congressmen that she welcomed their suggestions. But Fortney Stark, the irascible California Democrat who chairs the House health subcommittee, complained that he could not seriously study the plan under Mrs. Clinton's ground rules: that legislators could see it only in guarded "reading rooms" in the Capitol, where they would be forbidden to make copies or take notes. By early evening, majority leader Dick Gephardt ordered that they be given copies of the plan. And by 6 p.m., copies of those copies began making their way to news organizations, including Time.
