It's about orthodoxy

Clinton refuses to give in or give up, and presses certain points in order to push certain buttons. Witness this comment of hers: "This is a big difference in this campaign. It's not a difference of politics so much as commitment. ... How can anyone run to be the Democratic nominee and not have a universal health care plan?"

Say what? A Democrat can't have anything different than what she defines?

Obama did not mention Clinton until an employee asked about their respective health care plans. He acknowledged Clinton's criticisms, but said the government should not penalize low-income adults who choose not to buy health insurance even with a significant government subsidy.

Dubious endorsement: Meanwhile Friday, Clinton began airing an ad in Oregon in which former CIA operative Valerie Plame and her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, say the New York senator has the strongest plan to end the war in Iraq.

This is a former ambassador and an ex-CIA agent; they're authorities? Plu-eez.
