The article offers a look at United States presidential candidates for the 2004 election. Supporters of Howard Dean do not just argue that he would make a strong Democratic nominee; they argue that, even if he does not win, he will exert a positive force by energizing new groups of voters. Candidate John Edwards introduced his plan to expand health insurance coverage, particularly among children, through a system of tax incentives and expanded government programs. Parents would be legally responsible for providing their children with insurance or obtaining government insurance if private coverage was unaffordable. Taking this step--policy specialists call it an "individual mandate"--is important because, done properly, it would mean Edwards gets closer to truly "universal" coverage for children than both Dean and Kerry, at least at the outset.
