Elizabeth Edwards is putting in a plug for Hillary Rodham Clinton's health-care plan.

Her words may be the closest any Democratic presidential candidate gets to an endorsement from former rival John Edwards or his wife.

Both Clinton and Barack Obama have been hoping for backing from John Edwards, the former senator and 2004 vice presidential candidate. His home state of North Carolina holds its primary next month, with 115 delegates at stake.

Elizabeth Edwards tells ABC that she and her husband will offer only a "perspective" on the important issues of this campaign.

But she does mention a preference for Clinton's health-care plan, which would require everyone to have health insurance and offer aid to those who can't afford coverage. Obama's plan doesn't mandate that all adults buy coverage. Edwards says she has "more confidence" in Clinton's policy on this issue.
