A Different Bill And Hill

Usually, when political observers think of "Bill and Hill," they conjure up images of former President Clinton and wife Hillary, the Democratic senator from New York.

But on Thursday, Hillary is teaming with another Bill, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, the Republican from Tennessee, in pushing health-care information-sharing technology legislation. They assert their drive is a sign of growing bipartisan cooperation in the Senate.

Still, some pundits speculate the two could square off for the presidency in 2008.

They were all smiles when they on The Early Show Thursday.

Clinton told co-anchor Hannah Storm the measure would "create an electronic medical record that is secure and confidential for every American. It will provide immediate access to important health-care information to physicians treating you, to nurses who are looking after you, to hospitals and nursing homes who are taking care of you.
