I was just reading The Economist, and the main article in this week's issue is about the need to eradicate Malaria in the world. The writers say that we could have done it fifty years ago, but governments and agencies for eradication declared victory too early, and it bounced back heavily. They also suggested that political attention on the world stage is vital to the eradication of deadly diseases, i.e. malaria.

The question I am asking is: Why isn't disease eradication on a global scale a more important topic in the U.S. government? I certainly don't hear Obama or the candidates emphasizing the need for complete removal of diseases. Should this be a larger issue in the political spotlight?
