Before you immediately say it does not matter, let's be fair.

First issue and possibly the most sensitive is weight.

Chris Christie has been the butt of every fat joke ever written.

Granted Hillary is not as big as Christie. There is no denying...Hillary is overweight.

Next is age. Hillary will be 69 two weeks before the 2016 Election.

Ronald Reagan faced many questions and insults about his age.

To be fair he did lose it at the end to an age related illness.

Reagan was not overweight. Also, there are not a lot of overweight old folks around.

Now my final question is Health. Should Mrs. Clinton's health be an issue.

Since the 70's candidates have turned over there health records to the Press.

Should Hillary not be held to the same standard ?

Do you feel any of these questions are out of bounds because she is a Woman ?

If we are to have total equality should we have a different standard for a Women ?

Thoughts ? Mud ? Can't wait to see the replies...

If women live in average 5 years more would that means she would be comparable to a 64 men?

If her health is good, then age and weight shouldn't matter. If she was obese, her health would be questionable, but a few lbs overweight doesn't matter.

She absolutely should turn over her health records IF she decides to run. She should be treated the same as the male candidates. I don't see an argument against it. Her being a woman is irrelevant.

It all speaks to her ability to do the job ... so YES.
Same with Christie. Same with Jeb Bush. Same with Rubio.

Age matters. Health matters. Weight can matter. (I'm talking about Obesity)
The office of POTUS is exceptionally stressful.
Unless the person is in top health, they shouldn't be near the Oval Office.

10 of our presidents have been over 60. Age not an issue. Age might be an issue if she get's elected and runs for a second term. then we're talking over 70. Weight no. Health no.

Sounds fair...

I just don't think there should be a double standard.

Health should be a huge factor for anyone running for high office.
Why would you vote for someone in bad health?

It doesn't matter if age, health and weight should be issues; the fact of the matter is they will be issues....and I can say this right now, health is a legitimate issue; however, when you start in on a woman's age or weight, you are playing with fire. I know it's a double standard, but it is a fact of life...just ask your wives and/or girlfriends. The GOP would be wise to avoid those two subjects as 2016 approaches.

I don't think her weight, age or health should be an issue, but her lack of integrity certainly should be. She isn't a good enough liar to be president, and she isn't smart enough to cover her own tracks when she messes up.
And then there's the severe brain damage issue caused by her fall that left her unable to testify at the Benghazi hearings....

She also has a temper problem. So just bringing up those two issues time and time again could result in another fabulous meltdown in front of the media.

The GOP is not wise...

They will probably jump right in on these subjects.

In general terms, the physical and mental health of every candidate should be an issue for the nominating parties and the general electorate. That is why the same should be said of the Vice Presidential candidates as well since the inference is that they could become the President.

If we are talking about the accusations against her by a political rival, my personal opinion is that was nothing more than mud-slinging. And it appears to have back-fired as that sort of tactic should.

Given that candidates are no longer individuals, but representatives of a group with an agenda and a focused agenda I am more focused on the items on the Party's agenda than the health of the figurehead.

Worst case of selective amnesia I have ever seen.

It seems that in the upcoming elections, Republicans and Democrats seek to differenciate themselves is by nonsense like age, weight, sex, race, etc. Take away those factors and they are pretty much the same.

Instead, we should be asking, "If we elect this Republican or that Democrat, will we have the same rights and freedoms when they leave office as when they went in?"

The answer will be no.

Will she extend the Patriot Act?
Will she raise taxes?
With she extend NDAA?
Will she start new wars?
Will she push for gun control?
Will she encourage spying on Americans with drones etc?
Will she encourage "free speech" zones?

I could care less if she poops her pants on a daily basis.

Then her health is secondary.

But I'm glad you brought up this topic seeing as this will be present for most of the media and will ignore any lasting impacts ol' Hillary "Tubby" Clinton might enforce on those of us who would suffer under her rule.
