I haven’t discussed Hillary Clinton’s health before now, because I consider it a non-issue. However, the media frenzy, that has resulted from echoing the ludicrous claims of Rump Dump Trump has reached such an absurd level that they are ignoring significant news stories in the process.

As I said yesterday, Hillary's pressing on with pneumonia suggests to me strength, dedication, conscience, commitment to public service. Your (and Lawrence's) FDR comparison is apt if a little extreme - walking pneumonia mild enough for the patient to attribute the symptoms to allergies doesn't suggest dying in office. But the very extremeness of the comparison does indeed highlight the extremeness of the idiocy if the media - which reflects the idiocy of the electorate - at least a big part of it. I hope he is right that future historians will highlight this day as the day the media lost its collective mind. I wish I were confident.

She shows stamina, and strength through it all.

Anderson Cooper looked 'upset' while grilling her.

I'm much more interested in Trump's taxes than Hillary's pneumonia!

Really, the way the media has fawned over Trump, he could probably shoot someone and it would somehow be attributed to Hillary.  I agree with Carrie, I would love to see his tax returns.   He has to be hiding something.  Lawrence ODonnell brought that up tonight and how none of the political news media have asked to see the letter he got from the IRS informing him of the audit.

On the news today, there were reports that Clinton has a double doing campaigning in Clinton's absence.  Additionally, I believe it was the Drudge Report that was trying to ramp up a conspiracy theory that Clinton was receiving info and answers to questions at the Commander In Chief "debate".  The MSM needs to learn to discern the relative importance of events.  Pneumonia does not equate in importance to non disclosure of Drumpf's tax information where there are possibilities of conflicts of interest that could affect national security.  And voters need to use their God given brains to likewise concentrate on important matters and not be transfixed by the salacious.

Clinton's wooziness, her leaving the commemoration and subsequent reports of having pneumonia was a big issue here too, both in the newspaper and on the national news. However, her health as such isn't an issue, but the way she deals with it is. Continuing the line of to what's mentioned in this article, the analysts think her her penchant for privacy is what is really ailing her.

There was an overview of her whole career starting as a law student which showed that privacy has been a top priority for Clinton right from the start. Over the years she's become somewhat obsessive with it and is guarding her privacy and that of her family so strongly that it's become unbalanced with the offices she's held in the past and certainly with the one she's now seeking. While this certainly is understandable, her penchant has also become a weakness as many see it as being secretive and it's all too easy for her opponents to spin this aura of secrecy into having something to hide. And Drumpf, the great withholder of relevant information on tax returns or health assessments when it suits him, always knows how to turn his own failures around and makes them stick to his opponents.

As Robert Reich explained earlier, in his opinion there is nothing to hide for Hillary, and that may well be true. But a lifetime of guardedness has made her come across as aloof, cold and secretive, and it's something she'll not be able to turn around in the weeks to come. I hope her advisors can help her find a middle ground between opening up a little more and attacking Drumpf for being the hypocrite he is and demanding he be truthful about his non disclosures and investigations into the scams (his "university", the "donation" towards Bondi's campaign, non-existent donations to charities etc.).

So Trump talks about shooting Iranians, doesn't release his tax returns, pays $20,000 of his "charity's" money for a painting of himself, refuses to admit David Duke is a deplorable, and continues to belittle everyone who isn't him….but let's focus on Hillary's health. Yeah, that makes sense….

Noted...Having had pneumonia two times in my life, I'm here to tell you, it is so debilitating and knocks the stuffing right out of you. I'm not surprised the lady collapsed from having pneumonia, it is a ailment that can kill you, if you push it too much. So give the woman a break and she will recover and return to the long days and nights of electioneering. I hope she returns to the hustings fitter than a Malley Bull and runs rings around that ignoramous called Donald Grump. Thank you so much TomCat for sharing this information.❤️

I didn't believe the hype about her being too ill to be president. I don't think she should be president on her war and arms to the Middle East record among just a few reasons.

I just watched Keith Olbermann's 176 reasons not to elect Trump...17+ minutes of brilliance. SO GLAD he and Jon Stewart are back.

Having pneumonia is a scary thing. I had it five years ago and had the same symptoms that Hillary was having: lightheadedness,.faint, heavy cough, etc. It took me over two months to recover. Since then I have gotten the one pneumonia shot. I pray never to come across that again. As for the press and Trump making jokes,...he will get what he deserves. Thanks TomCat

On 9/12, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News combined for 13.5 hours of coverage of Hillary's health issues but only 1 hour of coverage of the issues with the criminal enterprise that is the Trump Foundation.

Reporting the sensational instead of substance.

O'Donnell is just sooooooo right! Rump is a VERY loose cannon, not fit to be dog catcher, and the Media are under his spell, or, really their own, as in it'a all ENTERTAINMENT to them! But the last thing Hillary ned to do is to give Rump a real situation on which to focus. Privacy is fine, but, nd here O'Donnell is wrong, the president's health has been a focus since Eisenhower. I recall the obsession about "What the president had for breakfast, today," after he had, as I recall, a heart attack. Privacy is fine, but the media sees itself as paparrazi, sniffing uot anything that will sell. It'slike the media has become a simply, slightly, more sophisticated National Enquirer!

Look at the stories offered on behalf of C2: so much of it is frigging gossip! Is it important, really, in anyone's life, just what Gene Wilder's net worth was, when he died? News? does it really matter what any Kardshian did, said, or when was the last time any one of them farted?

Hillary may have pneumonia, however secondary to ? Why did she want to know about a Parkinson Disease drug in one of the e-mail leaks? Why has several dr's stated it is much more, why was Dr. Drew's show canceled for stating his opinion when asked? All LIES from the media!

There are several follow ups by this Dr. Hillary Parkinsons

Hillary's look alike, common sense tells us Hillary came out of Chelsea's apt. looking like a totally new person, it also tells us were it her, she would have had Secret Service with her!

Geez, Carrie W. - with the blanked out profile page~ I wonder who you're supporting? And I wonder why? What's more curious is that you have no issues of concern regarding The D. Trump of outrageous behavior and blabber-mouthing? What the Hillary are you doing here?

There are trolls among us, Dot.....trolls among us.

Tom's right...this is a NON-ISSUE. She's in lots of crowds....she's on the road all the time....and she's human.
