Speculation, Rumors: Hillary Clinton's Health Is Poorer Than Disclosed

Of course we knew this chatter was coming since Hillary's health scare a couple of years ago.

There's not much in this story except for speculations and reports on the rumors. The rumors, of course, speculate that she won't run for president, due to health problems. There are reports in the National Enquirer and Globe, but their reliability is, of course, shaky.*

Asked about her health on Thursday, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in an email to The Daily Caller: ”To your question, very caring of you to ask. She’s 100%.”

But the rumors suggesting otherwise date back to the end of 2012, when Clinton’s health made headlines as she finished her term as secretary of state: aides explained then that she developed a stomach virus, hit her head, suffered a concussion and subsequently developed a blood clot in her brain but was being medicated and was expected to recover.

Obviously, I have no idea. Without evidence, I take this to be the normal sort of chatter you hear about every presidential candidate.

* I know people will point out, accurately, that the National Enquirer has nailed some stories (such as John Edwards' love child) that the media would not touch. And of course that's true.

However, the National Enquirer's claim that Hillary has "brain cancer" or an "inoperable brain tumor" date back to 2012, and the story said that details were leaking out. The suggestion, it seems to me, was that the secret wouldn't hold, and general reportage would soon be catching up with the National Enquirer.

But here we are, more than a year later, and the secret, if it exists, still holds. And if she does have a secret, it looks like she's going to be able to keep it.
