Brief mention: equal time for NomConjObjs

Joe Biden on the campaign trail in Wisconsin yesterday:

It was made very clear that they [Romney and Ryan] do not believe a woman has a right to control her own body. That’s between she and her doctor. [elsewhere transcribed as: … own body – that’s between …]

A NomConjObj (nominative conjoined object), with a 3sg pronoun as the first conjunct. This is a Democratic match to Republican Mitt Romney’s

I like he and Callista. (about Newt Gingrich)

reported on here, along with an instance from Romney of the more frequent 1sg as second conjunct.
