    The two leaders sat side by side in a pair of overstuffed armchairs at the Clinton Global Initiative for a televised—if somewhat wonky—conversation about health care economics.
    It's the nature of insurance, Obama said, for healthy people to subsidize those who need more care. Clinton says that's why it's important to get healthy young people enrolled in the insurance exchanges.

    "This only works, for example, if young people show up," said Clinton. "We've got to have them in the pools. Because otherwise all these projected low costs cannot be held if older people with pre-existing conditions are disproportionately represented in any given state."

      The Obama campaigns were brilliant at outreach and getting the message to people.

      There must be some excellent methods for combining financial contributions from those who can't volunteer, and volunteer hours from those who can, to reach the people we're after, and the brilliant methods of the campaign.

      It would be cool if millions of people were aided in their search for insurance by Democrats.
