Reuters: Clinton returns to campaign trail with Trump rising in polls

Hillary Clinton got back on the campaign trail on Thursday after taking three days off for pneumonia, and the Democratic presidential candidate faced a more challenging political landscape, with Republican rival Donald Trump rising in opinion polls.

Senior Clinton aides said they always expected the race to the Nov. 8 election to be close. But it was clear from a raft of new polls that Trump had halted a summer swoon after taking steps to deliver a less freewheeling, more polished performance on the stump.

Clinton, 68, appeared in good health on a visit to the press section of her campaign plane while flying to Greensboro, North Carolina, for a rally where she sought to refocus her campaign on the plight of the working class.

From the Democrats perspective that is a terrible photo of her. Look at her eyes.

Bob Huntley said...

James I thought she was winking.

War News Updates Editor said...

I also noticed her eyes. But what the hell is she wearing crossed my mind also.

RRH said...

She looks as if she has aged ten years in the last six months.

Something appears to be definitely wrong and pneumonia is not the start, nor end, of it.

James said...

Maybe she trying to, but if you can enlarge look at her left eye.

WNU: I don't and there are certain I prefer not to know.

RRH: I think you're right, but what? I've noticed that her "team" has made a point to list afflictions that are not neurological in nature. It really boils down to now, can she make it through the debate, standing up, on live camera? That is probably the most basic thing her team is concentrating on. Watch for them to work the sympathy angle non stop.

James said...

WNU: My comment should read "there are certain things I prefer not to know. Every male on earth should understand that.

The bulging eyes may be a sign of a sustained overdosing of her thyroid treatment. As someone who takes thyroid hormone, excessive levels give you extra energy, mental stamina, weight loss, and you need very little sleep, all useful things for a presidential candidate but terrible for your heart and vascular system. She probably takes the Armour thyroid because it has 6 times the human level of T3 resulting in minimal sleep. Thickening of the skin behind the eyes causing bulging eyes is a common indicator of hyperthyroidism, so it would be expected in someone abusing thyroid hormone. Interestingly, heat sensitivity is another.
