Something is quite wrong with Hillary Clinton. That much is obvious to anyone with a pulse. Yet just days ago, major media figures and the Clinton campaign itself was claiming that these “health rumors” were the stuff of the so-called right wing fever swamp and not to be taken seriously.
What a difference a few days make! After her repeated coughing fits and her health meltdown at the 9/11 memorial, her cheerleaders and spin doctors can’t feign ignorance or conservative conspiracies any more. The situation is so grim that leading Democrats are now talking about what was once unthinkable, as Cokie Roberts today told NPR… This morning on NPR’s Morning Edition, journalist and author Cokie Roberts indicated that many of the establishment Democrats may be getting antsy over the renewed speculation of Hillary Clinton‘s health.
“It’s taking her off of the campaign trail,” said Roberts Monday morning, indicating that the pneumonia has forced Clinton to cancel her upcoming trip to California. But as for members of the Democratic party, “It has them very nervously beginning to whisper about her stepping aside and finding another candidate.” It remains to be seen if the situation gets to that point, or if these unnamed Democrat figures even have the muscle to defy the Clintons, but every time she hacks, wobbles or stumbles, it brings Donald Trump one step closer to the White House and damages the Democrats chances of retaking the Senate. I’m sure Trump would rather take on a wounded Clinton than a fresh arm sent in for the ninth inning!
