Anybody hear what I heard???

I've not read every current thread on DU (I confess, I can't since I don't have THAT kind of idle time!), but I heard something from HRC in her "victory" speech last night that made me roll it back for an instant replay. She said at one point that she was going to win so she could bring about the reality of "universal health care!". Tell me if I'm wrong, but that seems to sound WAY different than "well fix Obamacare and make it better" - or am I dreaming? Wouldn't Medicare for all be the same thing as Universal Health Care???

Like I said: tell me if I just read it wrong. Seems to me she's shifted to Bernie's aims after being battered with the "No You Can't!" taunts. If they ARE the same thing, gonna be interesting to see how that topic squares when their in the next debate.
