Edwards, Kucinich: Only Candidates w/ Specific Universal Healthcare Plans

Another high-ranking West Coast SEIU official, speaking to me off the record, said: "If the election were held today, we'd be supporting Edwards. When he comes into town he asks what he can do for us. Hillary asks us what we can do for her."

Kucinich supports the ideal plan, which is obviously single payer national health insurance (aka medicare for all).

However, Edwards is the most progressive pro-union candidate to have a real shot of winning both the primary and general elections. His plan is a mixed lot, though his lit says it could gradually lead to a single payer type system.
