I was watching our local Colorado news after the DNC tonight. John McCain had a commercial featuring a Hillary Clinton supporter who said she was voting for McCain.
The ad said she was a “Former Hillary Delegate” and she claimed she was voting for McCain’s “experience and judgement.” This intrigued me because she was obviously very involved in the political process if she became a delegate, so she must be really concerned about the issues. So I started researching to feed my curiosity.
On May 5th, her local newspaper said:
Debra Bartoshevich of Waterford was elected to be a delegate for Clinton. Bartoshevich, who has worked as an emergency room nurse at Columbia-St. Mary’s Hospital in Milwaukee for 15 years, said she got involved because of the need for people to have access to health care.
“I support her because of her universal health care plan,” she said in a speech before the votes were cast. “I see the devastating consequences of diseases on the uninsured.”
If McCain were smart he would use Debra to tout his universal health care plan. Nobody is going to take her seriously if they think “experience” is her hot button issue, will they?
