Hillary seems like a fighter in the Tenth Round of the match.
Alternative title: Is Hillary sick in the head?
FWIW, Ive notice Hillary lately having a vacant, sickly appearance. Not enough to have done a post about it, but I noticed.
Alex Pappas at The Daily Caller writes that others have noticed, too. Whispers persist that Hillary wont run: Health may be worse than disclosed.
"If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front-runner in the next presidential race.
But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns .
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. Shes 100%.
But the rumors suggesting otherwise date back to the end of 2012, when Clintons 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.
But skeptics say there is much more to the story of her health, which has recently been the subject of increased speculation in Washington.
Because of these rumors, some on the right have been convincing themselves that Hillary is sick and therefore wont run a bombshell that would upend the 2016 race.
Roger Stone, the GOP consultant, wrote on Twitter recently that Clinton is not running for health reasons, telling followers to remember you heard it first from him."

Media Matters, defender of all things Hillary, sees deep conspiracies behind the rumors:
"The phony concussion rumor has faded away, so the Caller has made up a new one. And Pappas apparently did the job his employer is looking for his story got a Drudge Report link, and Caller reporters are paid in part based on traffic. This brand of conservative rumormongering is shoddy, but apparently it pays."
Who knows what the truth is.
I dont think its just a matter of age, or even the medicals. Hillary is just 2 years older than Elizabeth Warren, but they have very different energy.
Warren seems like a fighter in the first round, Hillary a fighter in the tenth round.
Hillary seems tired, someone going through the motions, who is fighting not because she wants to, but because its expected of her.
For years I’ve claimed she is physically ill. It’s the puffiness and swelling in her forearms, wrists and face. At minimum diabetes, but I think it’s something much worse.
She has a terminal disease, if smell could waft across the internet I could swear I am smelling it.
Doesn’t matter, the democrats will elect a cadaver if it promises them glory and equality for all.
Didn’t the “Beast” take a fall on her head awhile back?
Nonsense. Democrats don't give two hoots in a holler about whether they are healthy enough to serve in high office. They only care about personal power. And the news media will always cover it up. For examples, FDR and JFK.
Cadavers are significant in the Democrat base.
She’s an alcoholic.
It’s a convenient excuse.
I’ve lost consciousness plenty of times, and hit my head, and it’s not fun.
But I do not believe that that happened to her. All they do is lie.
Yes, many, many ‘RAT voters have assumed room temperature. The DNC could haul around Her Royal Heinous in a body bag, and she’d win the party’s nomination.
What, as if Joe “Village Idiot” Biden or “Fauxcahontas” Warren have a chance?
The wicked witch is one sick puppy! !
What ever happened in 2012, was fake. She was just delaying her testimony.
The blog quotes GOPe RINO political consultant Roger Stone. Roger Stone?!! Roger Stone?!! He’s backed more losers than Jenny Craig. If that idiot says Hellery’s not running, it’s a sure bet she *is* running.
Hillary! sure has a talent for keeping herself in the news and in the public eye.
A lot of this Hillary stuff is being published by the National Enquirer which is owned by a major Clinton backer.
What is it for?
The fact that she's not capable of doing the job won't stop Bill Clinton and all of the Clintons' minions. It may take more than one collapse in front of a large audience before she -- or her handlers -- throw in the towel. And what other candidates do the Democrats have?
Did anyone else notice that the link to the story disappeared from Drudge? They seem to be awfully sensitive about this story.
It’s a Fresnel Prism, used to help the wearer deal with double vision.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clintons new eyeglasses arent just a new look they have a special lens thats used to treat double vision, eye doctors told The Post. Clinton, recently treated for a blood clot near her brain after a fall, wore the Fresnel lens to aid her left eye during the Benghazi hearing. This kind of prism helps for people who are experiencing double vision, said Dr. Vike Vicente, a pediatric ophthalmologist in Bethesda, Md. Anybody whos had a head injury, as the Secretary of State did, it could affect the way your eyes move, he said.
Those interested in Hillary's glasses can search "fresnel prism glasses" and read about reasons why someone might need them. (Her handlers might make her leave the glasses when she's scheduled for a public appearance, but watch to see if they're always careful to assign an aide to stay on her left side.)
“Didnt the Beast take a fall on her head awhile back?”
That’s the CLAIM, and her excuse to delay her Benghazi testimony. Remember those dopey coke bottle glasses she was wearing for a while after her “accident”, supposedly they were needed after brained herself.
im thinking this is a red herring, a plant by the clinton campaign so that when she does come out swinging the spin will be how she has been maligned by nasty rumors, and look at her now!
Hey, you wouldn’t hit a woman with glasses on, would you?
<><> They've already had eight profitable years in the WH....they didn't have a pot to p** in in Arkansas and came out of Washington as multi-millionaires.
<><> 2016 is about Bill getting back into the WH using Hillary as a vehicle.
<><> Hillary fails on several counts. When her hubby was getting lewinskied in the Oval Office---- Hillary said Bill strayed b/c of "her own failure as a wife" .......not exactly words femi/nazis like to hear.
<><> OTOH, when Bill said "I never had sex with that woman," lesbians thought he meant Hillary---so she'll get the lesbian vote (/snix).
<><> The Clintons have their very own Muslim terrorist to carry out presidential orders. BACKSTORY Billy Boy Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative Foundation"....even Boobomba was there hugging Billy like they were old pals.....all in the wake of the bombshell news that:
<><> the tax-exempt Clinton Global Initiative Foundation uses shady financing;
<><> the tax-exempt Clinton Global Initiative had employed an active Muzzie terrorist named Gehad el-Haddad (The stupid Clintons did not know Gehad was Farsi for "jihad")
Gehad also knows how the Muslim Brotherhood launders money to finance terrorism, using "tax-exempt foundations."
THE CLINTON FOUNDATIONS / MUSLIM TERRORISM CONNECTION --- The recent story that a Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting terrorist activities at the same time, explains why the Clintons just remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."
The Clintons doing their "Holy Family" act.
NOTE The Clintons' shady foundation financing is unveiled in a recent NYT expose of Clinton corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism.
<><> And there's this downer for Hillary: HILLARY FIRED FROM WATERGATE IVESTIGATION FOR LYING AND FOR UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR
Excerpted from EO-History: The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillarys history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther and goes much deeper than anyone realizes.
Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedys chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifmans 17-year career.
Because she was a liar, Zeifman said in an interview last week. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.
How could a 27-year-old House staff member do all that? She couldnt do it by herself, but Zeifman said she was one of several individuals including Marshall, special counsel John Doar and senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum who engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.
Why would they want to do that?
Because, according to Zeifman, they feared putting Watergate break-in mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by counsel to the president. Hunt, Zeifman said, had the goods on nefarious activities in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a day at the beach including Kennedys purported complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.
The actions of Hillary and her cohorts went directly against the judgment of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip ONeill, that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel.
Zeifman says that Hillary, along with Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar, was determined to gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon. And in order to pull this off, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception.
The brief involved precedent for representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding. When Hillary endeavored to write a legal brief arguing there is no right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding, Zeifman says, he told Hillary about the case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970.
As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by (then-House Minority Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer, Zeifman said.
The Judiciary Committee allowed Douglas to keep counsel, thus establishing the precedent. Zeifman says he told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committees public files. So what did Hillary do?
Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public, Zeifman said. Hillary then proceeded to write a legal brief arguing there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding as if the Douglas case had never occurred.
The brief was so fraudulent and ridiculous, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.
Leave her to the Lord.
She has been living a grueling life for decades, grasping and scheming for power, accumulating stupendous wealth. It’s so nice to realize she has put herself through a living hell, unable to enjoy life, and now has nothing to show for it as her health breaks down.

You forgot the cankles.
She has one thing that will always remind her of Webb—Chelsea.
Dems couldn’t care less about her age, health, ability, sanity, etc. Just look at ol Robert Byrd. Good grief, he was as old as dirt and senile.
I had to check it out a week or so ago. A fresnel lens compensates for visual distortions due to stroke.
Ah, reading that gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling, and a thrill up my leg.
Arthur — thanks for that summary and for the excellent warning to the rest of us. As ye sow, so shall ye reap!
INCONVENIENT FACTOID Obamacare was preceded by Hillarycare----which went down in flames b/c Hillary held secret meetings.
AND NOW TO THE BUSINESS OF POLITICS ----In 2009, retiring Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry presciently warned that ObamaCare was setting up the Democrats for a huge 2010 midterms defeat (just like HillaryCare had led to a loss of 54 House seats in 1994).
Ego-driven Obama scoffed at such concerns. Berry said the president told him, Well, the big difference here and in 94 was youve got me.
END GAME Republicans went on to win 63 House seats and six Senate seats. It was the largest swing in the House since 1938. Looks like the "difference" was Obama (/snix).
BTW, Obama did not have to put on his thinking cap---b/c it was Hillary Clinton who whispered in his sweet little ears.
Yes, voters, it was Hillary who originally used the wonderfully reassuring if you like your plan, keep your plan a phrase that helped Obozo get reelected........and the talking point that Obama relied on during his fight to push Obamacare through Congress on an historic straight party-line all-Democrat vote.....
NOTE Hillary's 2007 campaign website was unearthed by America Rising. America's Rising found written on the website under "HILLARYCARE"---AKA Hillarys American Health Choices Plan---the phrase: if you have a plan you like, you keep it.
VIDEO of Hillary saying, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
See a smiling Hillary (above) in 2007, saying: You can keep the doctors you know and trust. You keep the insurance you have. If you have private insurance you like, nothing changes, you can keep that insurance.
This certainly seems to describe Hillary of the last year, or so. It doesn't seem like she really has the heart for another run at the presidency. "At this point, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE."
From 1993 El Rushbo:
“I don’t remember, ny brain’s in a blender, it’s Jello, jello, jello, jello..............”
I believe she has had at least 3 episodes.
Two words. Hugo Chavez
“Only the good die young.”
She fell off her barstool.
Is that like “Beer goggles”?
Sounds like she is having mini-strokes.
Right now, with the exception of Joe Biden, there haven’t been any Democrats talking about running in 2016. If Hillary is healthy, nobody will challenge her for the nomination. If, however, we begin hearing about others putting their name out there, it’s a good bet they are doing so because they know Hillary is too ill to run.
TIA.... transient ischemic attacks
They come announced on no schedule and for indeterminate time. We must not have a president with such a problem
Worse, the person may have no memory of the event.
She fell off her barstool.
And then accidentally dropped a six-pack of breakfast on her tongue.
