Battenfeld: Hillary Clinton’s ills become campaign’s focus
Boston Herald - 09/13/2016
Clinton’s campaign, in fact, already misled the public about her diagnosis — first she was overheated, then dehydrated, then, oh yeah, we forgot to mention that little pneumonia diagnosis from last week.
“I think they would have been smart to disclose it (immediately),” said Robert Gilbert, professor emeritus of political science at Northeastern University and author of several books about presidential health. “I think the public has a right to know certain illnesses.”
Clinton’s just following a long line of presidents, candidates and elected leaders who haven’t been up front about their serious health conditions.
