Early reports stated that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has shown serious health condition on her campaign trail.
Health-related issues affecting the candidate have become topics of speculation among civilians as well as conspiracy theorists. The latest report about her health was shown in a video taken at the 9/11 commemoration ceremony. In the video, she is escorted into a black van as she stumbles and faints.
According to Morning News USA, Clinton had projected strange facial tics and erratic behavior in public, and these were categorized as seizures. Moreover, Google allegedly manipulated the auto-complete algorithm related to searches about her health issues.
According to latest reports, a former Democratic National Committee chairman asked President Barack Obama and the party’s congressional leaders to come up with a process to select a potential successor candidate. This is because former DNC chairman Don Fowler believed there must be a “plan B” in case of a health emergency that might force the Democratic nominee out of the race.
“Now is the time for all good political leaders to come to the aid of their party,” said Fowler.
“I think the plan should be developed by 6 o’clock this afternoon.”
During the 9/11 commemoration ceremony, former secretary of state Clinton had become physically unstable and was taken to a hospital. It was reported that she had pneumonia.
Fowler wished her a full recovery; however, he stated that the DNC must have a contingency plan. The Democratic National Committee’s existing rules made the organization capable of naming a replacement candidate, but it included a few guidelines and parameters.
“It’s something you would be a fool not to prepare for,” Fowler told the press.
“She better get well before she gets back out there because if she gets back out there too soon, it might happen again.”
The focus is to know how to fill up the shoes of a candidate who would step out of the presidential race. The U.S. Constitution provided no answer to the question.
According to article two, section seven of the Democratic Party bylaws: “A special meeting to fill a vacancy on the National ticket shall be held on the call of the Chairperson.” After the special meeting or gathering took place for the Democratic Party, the decision will be made on the basis of a majority vote by those present, according to Yahoo News.
