Ted Kennedy asks Hillary Clinton to head Senate healthcare team
Los Angeles Times, November 19, 2008
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, considered a prominent contender to become secretary of State in the Obama administration, was offered to be a senior member of the Senate team aiming to overhaul the nation's healthcare system. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, who has announced plans to craft sweeping healthcare legislation, asked Clinton to head a working group focused on insurance coverage. The potential assignment comes a decade and a half after Clinton led a controversial, and ultimately failed, effort to reshape the healthcare system as first lady during her husband's first term in the White House.
