    Hillary has truly universal healthcare.  It requires everyone to be on the plan.  Why?  Because that is necessary to control costs.  Otherwise, the insurance companies can continue to game the system as they do now.

    Obama does not require everyone to be on the program.  He assumes that everyone will do the right thing and join if they can afford it.  But some cannot afford it, no matter how low it is.  However, those guys aren't the problem.  it's the single youngsters in their twenties who don't think they need insurance until they do, then it's too late.  They'd rather have the cash in their pockets.  When they get into an accident, the taxpayers take over for them.  They're the ones that would not buy insurance even under Obama's plan UNLESS they were required to do so, because they don't think they need it.

    Energy.  Obama now supports off-shore drilling.  hillary still does not.  Obama did not support a windfall profits tax to cover the highway costs if we gave the taxpayaers a "vacation" from the Federal Highway Tax on gasoline, Hillary did.  Now everything is on the table with Obama.

    Hillary believes in separation of church and state.  Obama no longer does.

    Hillary voted against FISA.  Obama voted for it.  I take it personally when my Fourth Amendment rights are taken away from me.

    Need I go on?

      Tell me how voting for McCain is going to be better than voting for Obama?

      Sorry to tell you this, but those ARE the two choices here.

      Not voting is, in my opinion, tantamount to giving a freebie to McCain.

      Do you really want to have four more years of this garbage simply because Obama's platform isn't EXACTLY like Hillary's??
