Obama and Clinton Tag Team on Health Care

"Facing a pivotal time for his signature health care law, President Obama will promote the program during a forum Tuesday hosted by predecessor Bill Clinton in New York City," USA Today reports.

First Read: "Also be sure to pay attention to Bill Clinton's role when the two men discuss health care at the Clinton Global Initiative. Remember, Clinton's previous effort to sell the reform -- earlier this month in Arkansas -- got drowned out by Syria. Also, it was now 20 years ago almost to the day when Clinton himself tried to sell health-care reform to the country (the famous Health Security Card speech to Congress). One thing the White House believes is that some of the folks the president would like to reach on the issue of health care (older voters) are more likely to listen to an explanation from Clinton than Obama right now. It's something they learned during the 2012 Democratic convention."
