Return to HillaryCare?

Some people just never learn, and this time, I'm not talking about the GOP. From Breitbart/AP:
Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday outlined an ambitious agenda of legislative priorities while continuing to deflect questions about her presumed presidential ambitions.

"I will look at the possibilities, but I ... haven't really had the time to talk to people about it," Clinton told a breakfast gathering hosted by the Association for a Better New York. "It's been a busy election season that worked out well, so I will think about it. I'm open to thoughts."
She also said Democrats would focus on improving the quality and affordability of health care - a touchy matter for the former first lady, who in 1993 led her husband's calamitous attempt to overhaul the nation's health care system (and saw said attempt squashed by a then-Democratic majority...in other words, it sucked so badly even her own party couldn't go along with it! - Ed.). The failure of that effort helped Republicans win control of both the Senate and House the following year.

"Health care is coming back," Clinton warned, adding, "It may be a bad dream for some."
Translation: "I am going to get my socialist utopia economy-wrecker of a health plan foisted on you peons, and by (insert deity du jour here), you idiots (clarification: she doesn't just mean the soldiers like Kerry did) are going to like it!" A rare glimpse of honesty from Her Highness, wouldn't you say?
