Reacting to Mrs. Clinton’s Illness

With less than 60 days to go, she will not be replaced.

When it was revealed over the weekend Hillary Clinton is suffering from pneumonia, the press pounced as it was fodder for them to create more political intrigue and make more money from advertising.  In fact, it was a nice tidy windfall for them.  Then began the calls for complete medical records of both Mrs. Clinton and Donald Trump, who appears to be quite healthy.

Whispers started circulating the DNC was meeting secretly to plot a replacement for Mrs. Clinton should she be unable to continue in the campaign.  This is reminiscent of Sen. Thomas Eagleton who ran as George McGovern’s vice presidential running mate in 1972.  When it was discovered Eagleton suffered from depression, he was replaced on the ticket by Kennedy in-law Sargent Shriver.  This will likely not happen to Mrs. Clinton as she will exert pressure on the DNC and media to quit undermining her.

Even though I am not a fan of the Clintons, I have not heard anybody say her pneumonia is a good thing, even from her alleged “basket of deplorables.”  Pneumonia is a horrible condition which has taken many lives and I, for one, certainly do not wish this on Mrs. Clinton, nor do I believe does Mr. Trump.  It would be better to win a fair-and-square contest as opposed to winning over a candidate in a weakened condition.

The most disturbing thing coming out of all this is it reveals a culture of cover-ups by the Clintons, that we are not getting the truth from them.  So far, they have been able to escape prosecution on a variety of subjects, but she cannot escape her medical condition.  Let’s hope she takes her doctor’s advice and recuperates before returning to the campaign trail.  We all want her healthy for the upcoming debates.

Keep the Faith!
