“Clinton’s real problem isn’t her health but the entirely valid perception that she’s dishonest, secretive and exploits “the system” — including the support of the mainstream media — for her benefit.”
Yep. Had Mrs. Clinton said she was under the weather, or entered the debate about her health in the same way it’s been covered with older candidates in the past, then nothing. Nothing at all. That would be the result of her pneumonia. Oh, and well wishes and hope for a speedy recovery.
As a result, as Mr. Goldberg points out, we have the media and the Democrats bending over backwards to validate everything their critics, and the undecided, already suspect.
