My husband went to a Nats game last week. It was a day game and it was hot. He stood in the sun for more than an hour, waiting for our chronically late teenage son to arrive, and it did not end well.

Apparently my husband didn’t drink enough water. Heat exhaustion got him – all of a sudden he couldn’t hold his head up, everything went black and he was nauseated.   Sound familiar?

When Hilary went wobbly at the 9/11 memorial event,  I don’t think it was much different.  My husband and Mrs. Clinton are the same age. My husband is retired, he’s not campaigning all over the country and he doesn’t have pneumonia. He was at a baseball game in the middle of the day. So regardless of your political position, it might be a good idea to give Hilary a pass on this one and walk a mile in her heels.
