    Hillary too sick to run

    There are rumors Hillary is very sick and won't run. If true this would shake up the next election big time. The democrats don't really have a next in line except her and would be stuck with Biden in which case they lose.


    "If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front-runner in the next presidential race.

    But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns."

    “Already,” Henneberger wrote, “reports that describe Clinton’s right transverse sinus venous thrombosis as potentially life-threatening, though apparently caught in enough time, sound a lot more serious than the word from her doctors that the secretary is ‘making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family and her staff.’”
    Henneberger asked then if we would “really be shocked to learn down the road that reports during her hospitalization had put a positive spin on her condition?”
    “Our public officials have trained us to take everything they say with a healthy dose of skepticism,” Henneberger continued, “and on a matter as sensitive as a head injury followed by denials of any neurological symptoms, I’m not sure why we would or should unquestioningly accept the word of any politician.”
    Some have noted Clinton’s change in appearance, including the addition of thick glasses, since her hospitalization. “One doesn’t need to be a physician… to have seen that Clinton has not appeared exactly bright-eyed and bushy-tailed of late,” Mary Stanik, a former Minnesota health care spokeswoman, wrote in 2013. “She looks to have gained a significant amount of weight since 2008. She seems pale, tired, and yes, aged. She’s said that she would like to know again what it’s like to not be tired.”
    Last year, a Clinton aide acknowledged that her health crisis caused her to stop wearing contact lenses.
    “She’ll be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion,” spokesman Philippe Reines told ABC News in 2013. “With them on, she sees just fine.”

    I don't think the Democrats or Republicans have anybody for 2016 that I could get all warm and fuzzy about.

    The tabloids may get a correct article every once in awhile just like a broken clock is correct twice a day. But I scan the tabloids at the checkout line at the store like most people and it seems they are always finding somebody with some disease or marrage problem. Trash sells.

    I don't ****ing know, I'm not her ****ing doctor. What's the point of this poll?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Re: Hillary too sick to run

    She does look a bit old and tired. If I were her, I'd not run. She should retire now and enjoy her golden years without the incredible pressure of being POTUS.

    But, then, I wouldn't run for POTUS were I as healthy as I was 50 years ago. Why anyone wants that job is beyond me, unless it is some sort of a power trip.


    As for who else the Democrats have to run, that's another good question, at least as good as who the Republicans are going to run now that Christy has shown his true colors.

    I'm predicting yet another choice of who is the least bad, rather than who is best. I'm voting Voldemort, as I'm tired of voting for the lesser of the evils.

    As Stillballin said, I'm not her doctor. That said...

    President John F. Kennedy's medical records reveal that he had suffered health problems since childhood, and used an arsenal of drugs, including painkillers and stimulants, to treat various medical conditions during his presidency.

    A historian who examined his medical records was stunned at the extent of the health problems that the seemingly vigorous president dealt with.

    "There was hardly a day that went by that he didn't suffer terribly," presidential historian Robert Dallek, a history professor at Boston University, told ABCNEWS' Good Morning America.

    This is old news but stuff that not a lot of people knew about. Thank god for JFK he didn't live in the Twitter age.

    Kinda dumb to comment on stuff I know absolutely nothing about so I will leave the speculating to others...

    Were knowing something about a subject be a requirement to comment on a subject, DP wouldn't exist.

    Re: Hillary too sick to run

    I would imagine a lot of Presidents and candidates had health issues? They're usually not 'spring chickens'. FDR-polio, Reagan-alzheimers, Bush Sr-heart etc.

    If she's even halfway refreshed, fit and mentally/emotionally steady, she'll run. I think after her blood clot, her daughter told the Press she was worn down. Probably from all the traveling she did as head of State and flack from Benghazi.
