At a mid-November conference in Sacramento on implementation of the federal health care overhaul in 2014, California Health and Human Services Secretary Diana Dooley outlined the political aspects of the task ahead. Though President Barack Obama had been re-elected in part on the promise of expanding access to health care, Dooley said, voters will hold her boss to a higher standard if he seeks re-election in November 2014. They will judge Gov. Jerry Brown in part on how well the state delivers on that promise.
