this is though an issue about any candidate

let's look at things objectively:
1. she has already over the last 7 years mentioned some health issues to include memory loss (some even theorize that she may have had a minor stroke)
her fainting and concussion.... Hillary Clinton faints, has concussion - CNN.com

Hillary

her possible mild stroke... Did Hillary Clinton suffer a stroke? If so, what about 2016? (Photos) - Washington DC Government careers | Examiner.com

the blood clot in her brain..(one of the reasons why some think minor stroke).... Hillary Clinton Blood Clot Was Life-Threatening, Say Medical Experts - ABC News



2. at 69 she will be in the same age bracket that people called Reagan, Ron Paul, McCain, bob dole and a few others '''too old""....Reagan took office at 69...ron paul was 73 for the 08' election and 77 for the 12' election....McCain was 72 in 08'....dole was 73 in 96' running against bill clinton

3. on top of that her choice of VP will be a VERY BIG thing, IF there is truly a medical issue or she is ''too old''....since VP to POTUS is an ascension thing, her choice of VP with questionable health/age can be a major concern of anyone thinking of voting for her (think about the 08 republican side....McCain was said to be too old and in too bad of health...and people were very afraid he would die in office and Palin would be elevated to POTUS)

4. not to mention she now has a very long list of baggage and skeletons in her closet.......she very well might not be the ideal choice of the democrat party
Health, and age are fair game, but I've never heard a male candidate joked about for having supposedly fat ankles, or a "turkey waddle," two comments I read on this thread, among hundreds of other digs about her physical attractiveness, (or lack of) here, and other places. That type of thing is reserved for women, and it should have no place in the process of choosing an elected representative.

President Reagan was attacked for the color of his hair, the wrinkles on his neck, as well as demands that he take "senility" tests because of his age (he was the same age in 1980 as Mrs. Clinton is today).


Will there be demands that she be tested for senility so the public can be assured she isn't turning "funny" in her old age?

Fat ankles and a turkey waddle are not a "dig about her physical attractiveness". They are a likely indicator of underlying health issues, the least of which being her likely high % of body fat.

Despite the fact that I don't believe any president does any meaningful "work", their term in office is nonetheless brutal on their health. The reality is Hillary is aging poorly, and 4 years of pressure certainly aren't going to do her any favor. Politics are no place for the elderly, because we don't know when they lose their grasp on reality (see Pelosi, Nancy).

Do you miss every time Christi is talked about in the media?

I'm just wondering because their is a heavy amount of fat shaming going on with him, and yes the pun was intended.

I bet you get defensive over anything.

Were you this concerned when it was John McCain???
McCain's Age and Past Health Problems Could Be An Issue in the Presidential Race - US News

How many threads here were actually started on the subject of health.

the age argument seems to be centered around nothing more than tradition.

If that's the case then she should release her medical history like other candidates have.

When question arise about taxes and finance, past candidates have released their tax returns to answer those questions.

If she has nothing to hide releasing any pertinent info would resolve any outstanding issues in regards to this, wouldn't it?

And BTW literally millions of people have had health issues before 70 so I don't see how your statement clarifies anything.
