Last week, at the University of Texas, Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.) spent a lot of time talking about health care. As Obama said, the two candidates have a "substantive difference" over how Americans should be covered.

Finally! A "substantive difference."

On today's program, in the first hour, we're on the lookout for more of them. When it comes to the issues — Iraq, the environment, education, and trade, to name just a few —, what sets the two Democratic candidates apart?

Kirk Victor, of the National Journal, will field questions about domestic policy positions. (You can read his article, "A Dime's Worth of Difference," here). And Michael Hirsh, a senior editor at Newsweek, will tackle foreign policy distinctions. Julie Rovner, NPR's health policy correspondent, will join us too. Tell us what issue is the most important to you, and we'll tell you where the candidates stand.
