Julia's Health: The Elephant in the Room

What is up with Julia Carson's health? Is it as bad as it appears? While she is campaigning, she appears to be frail and having difficulty breathing. Somehow, it seems to have become an off-limits topic. When did it become taboo for a candidate to tout the literal unfitness of his oppenent?

If she's sick, if she can't serve, if she's having trouble traveling, or fulfilling her duties, she should withdraw her candidacy. And if she's still able to serve, but not likely to fulfill her term or duties, we as voters shouldn't feel bad about not returning her to DC. I'd love to see some information coming out to voters about the actual situation since I don't think many know how truly ill she is -- or appears to be -- unless they've seen her in person. Dickerson needs to get tough with this race and asking honest questions about her fitness should be one way to do it.

Julia Carson has been trouble "fulfilling her duties" for a long time now as a representative. I'm sorry, that's probably inappropriate. I agree with you on the voters need to know about a candidate's health in certain situations. Nice post, first I've seen on the topic.

Julia spend the past 30+ years on the public payroll. It's past time for her to retire.
