RAHM EMANUEL: I assume we’re going to hit on a lot of topics. I’m going to open up with healthcare. You know, I talked to Senator Dodd yesterday, who is if you don’t know, finished up the markup of his bill except for one provision, which is the coverage provision, which he will do as soon as they get back from break, which is right on schedule.

And I use that as an example, though, of having been here in the White House in ’93 when they were dealing with healthcare, or that was actually ’93 through ’94. You have stark differences between now and then, and a lot of what we have done are ah, and I’ve said this early on when we started, lessons learned.

And even the secretary of State has noted differences of what we have done.
