BlogHer's community has put together a Voter Manifesto of 12 non-partisan questions across 4 hot topics (Iraq, the Environment, Our Economic Future and Healthcare.) For months we have been inviting the presidential candidates to answer some or all of these questions. We've offered to travel to where they are, provide an interviewer from their own side of the aisle, and basically do whatever it takes to get their participation.
Finally, one candidate has come through, and this weekend our Politics and News editor Erin Kotecki Vest traveled to Oregon to meet with Obama one on one and conduct this 10 minute interview, exclusively focused on asking our Voter Manifesto questions.
Yes there are questions about healthcare, both about his health care plan, but also references to how we are taking care of returning troops, health-wise, which I appreciated.
