Obama Reaches Out to Elizabeth Edwards on Health Policy

clipped from blogs.wsj.com

Elizabeth Edwards didn’t stand alongside her husband as he endorsed Barack Obama last month. But now that Obama is the presumptive Democratic nominee, he’s working to draw her help on health policy, despite her having previously stated her preference for Hillary Clinton’s health-care plan.

The Edwards couple attended Obama’s speech on the economy yesterday in Raleigh, N.C. According to CQ Transcriptions, Obama noted that they were in the audience and praised, among other things, their focus on “critical issues like health care.” Later, he added: “We need to reform our health care system — and, by the way, I’m going to be partnering up with Elizabeth Edwards. We’re going to be figuring all this out.”
