8. I would love to see her debate a rethug

She seems talented; smart, articulate, fearless, knowledgeable and willing to learn. On top of all that she is stunning which easily makes her media magnet (an asset in todays environment). However, I have not yet seen her debate any repub opponents.
I donít know for a fact if medicare for all is the best option, are there any alternatives? Iíve always thought that ACA was a great start and could have been improved by adding a public option, state mandates, etc. The premise was that the cost would start to go down after 10 years. This makes sense because initially there would be a lot of sick people in the system who were denied coverage before. ACA also had a competition component that stimulates private hospitals to become more efficient. I donít know what is the pathway for Medicare For All to replace ACA. I think dems need to figure out how to articulate proposals concisely yet with enough detail to be able to defend this.
