Elizabeth Edwards likes it

She prefers Hillary's health care plan over Obama's:

"You need that universality in order to get the cost savings," Edwards said on ABC's "Good Morning America." "I just have more confidence in Senator Clinton's policy than Senator Obama's on this particular issue."

Both candidates have been assiduously courting Edwards since he dropped out of the race. When Clinton last week proposed creating a poverty czar, many saw that as reaching out to Edwards, who has made fighting poverty his calling and who, along with former Vice President Al Gore, is perhaps the highest-impact uncommitted Democrat.

In the interview, Elizabeth Edwards also said that she wouldn't be upset if the nomination battle went all the way to the August national convention and that Clinton and Obama would be a great joint ticket.

Always liked Elizabeth and wishing her the best. John, too.
