Illegal immigrants are entitled to "emergency hospitalization"; e.g. child birth.

A National Health Care system is not a bad idea. It's a way for the government to protect it's least fortunate citizens. As long as there is a way to pay for it without significantly raising taxes, cutting from another important field, or engaging in severe budget deficits, there is nothing wrong with a National Health Care system.

If Clinton is confident of his stature and legacy, then how come he falls all over himself everytime some interviewer doesn't throw him a softball question?

Clinton was annoyed because he was told the questions would be about humanitarian efforts. Although I think in some ways his flip-out was to show Democrats have a spine (i.e. I think the reaction may have been pre-planned). I've heard him answer that question on more than one occassion before in a calm and peaceful manner.
