Benghazi didn’t do it. Nor did the email scandal and ensuing FBI investigation do it.But could today’s “medical episode,” in which the Democrat presidential nominee collapsed— and the supposedly delayed reporting of the candidate’s “pneumonia” — be the straw that broke the camel’s back for Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid?
According to one Democrat operative, the answer may be yes.
As The Gateway Pundit reports:
Reporter David Shuster posted to Twitter Sunday evening that operatives in the Democratic Party have told him an emergency meeting by the Democratic National Committee is being considered to replace presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on the heels of her case of pneumonia allegedly causing her to collapse Sunday morning at the 9/11 15th anniversary commemoration at Ground Zero in New York City.
Now, to be clear, this is one unidentified source. One who, nonetheless, raises a point we’ve all had to wonder about — including the Democrats themselves.But even if this proves to be true — that the DNC is considering a replacement — it is unclear whether that even matters, if the decision is ultimately up to the candidate herself.
Top dem: “we can make contingencies, argue, plead with @HillaryClinton, but DNC bylaws are clear her nominee status now totally up to her.”

Honestly, at this point, as deplorable a candidate as Hillary Clinton is for president — and as disastrous as a Hillary presidency would be — we should all hope she stays in the race. Her cracks are only widening, and even typically loyal groups are starting to wake up — including the media.
We say, bring on the debates!
