Get it in Writing!

The Boston Globe reports:
In New Haven on Monday, a fourth-year Yale medical student named Liza Goldman approached us excitedly to report on a conversation she had with the New York Senator on the rope line.

According to Goldman, she told Clinton, “I’m sure you know that single-payer would save billions of dollars and thousands of lives.”

Clinton, Goldman says, responded in agreement but said, “It’s not politically feasible.”

So Goldman offered her a hypothetical: “Would you sign it if it came across your desk?”

“She said yes, and shook my hand,” Goldman said.

A Clinton spokesman did not get back to us about whether Clinton remembers the conversation the same way.
