Emmy night: What President Cherry Jones would do

Cherry Jones, who plays the U.S. president in "24," revealed some details about an upcoming episode. Jones was speaking backstage after getting an Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series.

The show is now shooting episode 10 of its season in Los Angeles - pretending it's New York.

In this episode, she is "dealing a world leader who is being played by Anil Kapoor from 'Slumdog Millionaire,' " she said.

Jones was asked what she would do about health care if she were the real president.

"I'd go for broke, that's what I'd do," Jones said. "I'd go for universal health care."

    Go for broke is right.... look at Canada. Taxed to the hilt to pay for universal health care that still doesn't meet the needs of the people. If Americans think they can get universal health care without paying taxes through the nose, they're delusional.

    "I’d go for broke... I’d go for universal health care.”

    Poor choice of words?
