WWPD? We Want Specifics

From a Fox News "Election Headquarters" interview with Denise Brewitt, executive director of the Council for Children and Adolescents with Chronic Health Conditions.

FOX: What are you hearing from other mothers who are in your situation about their take on Sarah Palin given that she said, "You will have an advocate in the White House"?

BREWITT: I think they want to know what she really means. It is one thing to say that you have a child with special health care needs, but it's another to know what you are planning to do about it, especially being in the position that Sarah is in.

FOX: OK. What specifically would families like to hear from her?

BREWITT: Everyone wants their child to have access to the healthcare that they need, for the support and services. And I think we all know that Sarah Palin is in a position that she probably has all the resources available to her. But unfortunately, that isn't the case across America. There are many families who are not able to receive the services that their children need.

Full interview.
