It would be nice if a national presidential election was about things like the failing Obamacare, the endless waves of illegal immigrants, jobs, the economy and national defense, but the reality is that is not the media environment that we live in.
It is also true that they candidate’s fitness to serve in a high pressure, high responsibility position like president is important.
So when a liberal apologist rag like the Washington Post is ready to admit that Hillary Clinton has a MAJOR problem, it is worth taking note.
As they report after Clinton’s medical emergency at the 9/11 event…
Hillary Clinton falling ill Sunday morning at a memorial service on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks will catapult questions about her health from the ranks of conservative conspiracy theory to perhaps the central debate in the presidential race over the coming days.
Whether Clinton likes it or not, her “overheating” episode comes at a very bad time for her campaign. Thanks to the likes of Rudy Giuliani and a small but vocal element of the Republican base, talk of her health had been bubbling over the past week — triggered by a coughing episode she experienced during a Labor Day rally.
Whereas Clinton and her campaign could laugh off questions about her health before today, the “overheating” episode makes it almost impossible for them to do so. Not only has it come at a time when there was growing chatter — with very little evidence — that her health was a problem but it also happened at a 9/11 memorial event — an incredibly high-profile moment with lots and lots of cameras and reporters around.
Hillary is already collapsing in the polls as well as on the sidewalk. This is going to create even more headwinds for her already troubled campaign.
How many voters are going to be willing to pull the trigger for her just to end up with a virtually unknown President Kaine? The truth remains to be seen, but I would guess not many!
