At the height of a cutthroat primary election season, Democratic frontrunners Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama may not seem to share much common ground. But back in a more peaceful era, the two Senators – both former attorneys – joined together to advocate for patient safety. An article co-authored by the pair was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2006. Although the medical reform bill Obama and Clinton were backing at the time ultimately failed to pass muster, their stated goals of reducing medical errors and improving transparency in the health care system are something we can all get behind, no matter where we happen to fall along the political spectrum.
