While we are all concerned about the video which showed the former Secretary of State appear to stagger, we should be extremely impressed by the fact that she hid her illness from the public for so long while still soldiering on with her campaign work. She knows what’s at stake in this election, and she’s put her own health on the line in service of the American people.
