So what is going on with Mrs. Clinton, anyway?

A few incidents, from the Chicago Boyz:
1998 Blood Clot
Clinton’s first known blood clot occurred in 1998, while she was still first lady.
Clinton experienced symptoms while attending a fundraiser for Sen. Charles Schumer of New York, who would soon become her Senate home-state colleague. Her right foot swelled up to the point where she couldn’t put on her shoe.
Clinton got quietly taken to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda for treatment at the time. She was found to have ‘a big clot’ blood clot behind her knee, Clinton wrote in her memoir, ‘Living History.’
She called it ‘the most significant health scare I’ve ever had,’ the Washington Post noted.
According to her physician, Mt. Kisco physician, Lisa Bardack, Clinton was advised at the time to take Lovenox, described as a short-acting blood thinner, when she took flights. The meds were discontinued when she went on Coumadin.


2009 Blood Clot
Clinton had a second blood clot incident in 2009. The episode was described by her doctor in a 2015 letter. [...]
2012 Blood Clot and Concussion
Clinton got a bad stomach bug and fainted at her home in Washington in 2012, an event that led her to get a concussion. Information about what exactly had happened emerged only slowly over time.
As her doctor put it, ‘In December 2012, Mrs. Clinton suffered a stomach virus after traveling, became dehydrated, fainted and sustained a concussion.’
The then-secretary of state wasn’t seen in public between Dec. 7th and when she left the hospital in New York January 2, 2013.
Clinton experienced ‘double vision for a period of time and benefited from wearing glasses with a Fresnel Prism,’ a special corrective lens, her doctor wrote in a letter voluntarily released to the media in 2015 as part of Clinton’s presidential campaign. Her concussion ‘resolved within two months,’ Bardack wrote.
 There's more than that, too. Hit the link.

Took another look at Bill's comments, and it's worse. The doctors don't know what's wrong with her....which is in my experience often code for "make sure your will and funeral plans are in order", meaning that the equilibrium that the body needs to live is being seriously disrupted. I think the Chicago Boyz are understating what's up.

She's a very sick or person. Why is she even running for president?

Why is she even running for president?

1) Because it's her turn, dammit.
2) Because the Democrats have no bench. Think about it — the most ostensibly successful Dem politician these days is Jerry Brown, who is a disaster and about 114 years old.
3) Because everyone else in the party is frightened of the Clintons.
4) Because Barack Obama didn't dare put someone else in the line of succession, because she knows where his bodies are buried.
5) Because it's her turn, dammit. Didn't I tell you that before?

Gotta be some nasty compulsion that drives her, especially when all indications are that (a) Republicans will not get effective prosecution if they win the White House and (b) striving for power could well kill her and her husband both.

It will be a happy day when I can talk about top Democrats without sounding like I'm ghostwriting for Mario Puzo. I am not holding my breath.
