Is Hillary Clinton Too Sick to Run for President?
Hillary Clinton has been a figurehead of the Democratic Party for decades. It’s hard to remember a time before she and her husband were in the national spotlight, but that makes us think: should we be concerned about her health? Being in politics is one of the most stressful careers a person can be in, and we know that Hillary does have a history of illness (most notably a concussion and blood clot with hospitalization following the end of her term as Secretary of State).
And she’s certainly been under a large amount of stress lately – a former Clinton White House official has come out saying that he can’t name any of Hillary’s accomplishments (we can’t name any either). That’s got to be a stressor. And former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has (along with so many others) recently openly blamed Hillary for the Benghazi murders.
On top of that, Mitt Romney has fired up the Republican Party for the 2016 Presidential race, urging them to go ahead and focus on fighting Hillary now. If she’s thinking about a 2016 run – and sources have pointed that way – she’s already coming under heavy fire. The combination of all these things lend truth to the rumors that she may not even be healthy enough to consider running.
Here’s an excerpt from The Daily Caller article (read more here):
Asked about her health on Thursday, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in an email to The Daily Caller: ”To your question, very caring of you to ask. She’s 100%.”
But the rumors suggesting otherwise date back to the end of 2012, when Clinton’s health made headlines as she finished her term as secretary of state: aides explained then that she developed a stomach virus, hit her head, suffered a concussion and subsequently developed a blood clot in her brain but was being medicated and was expected to recover.
But skeptics say there is much more to the story of her health, which has recently been the subject of increased speculation in Washington.
Because of these rumors, some on the right have been convincing themselves that Hillary is sick and therefore won’t run — a bombshell that would upend the 2016 race.
Of course we wish the best for Hillary and hope she truly isn’t having health problems. But if there is truth to these rumors, then she absolutely shouldn’t run for President. Our President – whoever he or she may be – needs to be running full cylinders for his or her entire term. It’s just not fair to the American people otherwise.
