I have a question to ask HG

During the 2008 primary I thought I saw Dashcle, (the old minority leader from SD) ,who was an Obama surrogate at the time, being interviewed by Tim Russert from Meet the Press. I thought that Russert was asking about their respective positions on health care. Tim Russert said that Obama wasn't for a mandate but Hill was, and why was Dasshcle touting Obama's health care policy when hers aligned more with Dashcle. Dashcle was forbthe mandate.

1. I'm not certain about Daschle

but I vaguely remember in one debate between Hillary and Obama that she said there would have to be some sort of mandate (just as people are required to sign up and start paying into Medicare at age 65 or be fined) to make it work, and Obama said he was against it. I don't think at the time he understood how many people would take advantage if there was no mandate of any kind.

3. Yes, the major difference in 08 was the individual mandate

Clinton for and Obama against. Of course Obama ended up adopting it anyway.
