    If Hillary Clinton has a serious medical condition, should she drop out of the election?

    I'm curious what everyone's thoughts are regarding this. If she does have to exit the race, what are the repercussions of doing so?

    Yes, she should drop out the race, and I don't know what repercussions will be, but it couldn't be any worse than it is now.

    If it is really just a case of pneumonia then no she doesn't need to drop out. Pneumonia is bad but it's treatable and if it's taken care of you can be back to normal in a short time. I've had pneumonia 3 times, each case a little worse than the previous one, but they were all treatable and I was back to work in about a week. However, if the pneumonia is the result of a more severe problem then yes, she should drop out now and allow another candidate to step in.

    I just think this scenario keeps getting better every day, one day someone has a photo of some doctor trailing her around with a syringe, saying he never really leaves her side when she travels.

    The next she is collapsing and going into hiding after having a fit and saying anyone who supports Trump belongs in "the basket of deplorables." remarked Clinton. "Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it."

    Its like, how much can the media cover for her... from her tens of millions funneled through her "non-profit" so the Clintons can live like kings, elitists, to the fact that she has failed at every facet as a public servant especially as Secretary of State, what GOOD was accomplished during her four years?  The spread of terrorism throughout Europe and beyond?  The expansion and unchecked aggressive territorial take-overs by China and Russia?  How swell things have gone with Iran?

    smh... downright scary, the businessman not really ready for the job, or the corrupt lifer politician that will continue on with every failed policy and trade deal going... while allowing the world to continue to slide towards WWIII.

      The businessman not ready for the job. Consider, that the US declined to where we are today, by politicians that didn't do the job. So it is rather condensing on your part to say Trump isn't up to the job. How much worse could he do, than the pro

      I believe you meant 'condescending'... my opinion is he is not really ready for the job, and he is not, in truth few are... I think Reagan and Bush Sr. were... Obama the Jr. Senator was not... but we are still here, Trump is more prepared than he was

      If I want spelling or word lessons, I will google it.
      And yes, Condescending is appropriate for your comment.
      My pt professional politicians have not done the job. No presidential candidate was prepared, even incumbents failed.

    No one should ask her to do one more thing that involves any kind of personal disclosure until Trump releases official health records of any kind and at the very least last year's tax returns.  Period.  End of story.  Fair is fair.  This is what presidential candidates do.  In this area, at least, he should be held to a standard of behavior.

      I think even if she didn't provide anything on her medical records it would just perpetuate speculation regarding her health. She can't know when these "episodes" happen so she's gambling every time she step out in public.

    Should she? Yes.
    Will she? No, because the likely case of Parkinson's she's had or repeated strokes go back to at least 2012 (her concussion then, deep vein thrombosis, broken arm from a fall), and she still ran.
    She CHOSE to run for office knowing she had many health problems. She won't back out now this close.

    Your question is IF she has a serious medical condition.  If she does and Trump hasn't started rumors, it depends on her mental and physical health.  If she had a cancer that only gave her less than 4 years to live, then, yes, she should exit the race.  But if she is mentally stable, and if she had cancer but it was a slow moving one and she could still do her job, then she could still run for office.  I think it is just rumors about her "failing" health.  I think she has too much integrity to pursue this race if she, as well as the doctors, truly thought she couldn't handle the job.  I don't believe she's ready to croak.  Who knows -- What if Trump ended up with prostate cancer?  Would people still vote for him?

      Well, she lied about her health which is enough. And historically, she doesn't have enough integrity to tell a grieving mother the truth about her son dying in Benghazi.
