CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Former President
Bill Clinton said Friday that disasters such as worldwide famine and an obesity epidemic could destroy the U.S. health care system unless politicians begin to look ahead and cooperate.

"This is coming," Clinton said. "And I know there is no great political constituency for it, but we can avert these disasters for not very much money if they can be put into the public debate and people understand clearly what's going to happen."

Clinton warned presidential candidates of both parties — a group that includes his wife, Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton- that it will be hard, and likely unpopular, to prepare for foreseeable disasters.
