Hillary seems incapable of listening to her people.
It's all in relativity.

This really hit Russia hard beginning in the 1970s, beginning with Leonid Brezhnev. An overweight alcoholic smoker addicted to sleeping pills. In 1975, he had a heart attack, and after another heart attack, he was ordered by the Health Minister to keep a healing team at standby near Brezhnev at all times. But it gets worse. As his health worsened, the Politdesk prepared for new elections, suggesting candidacy to A. Kirelenko (d. 1990), K. Cherenko (d. 1985), M. Suslov (d. 1982), and worst of all F. Kulakov (d. 1978).
He had a very big heart attack in May 1982, but despite this, he kept on being the general secretary until a heart attack killed him in November.
His successor, was Yoori Andropov (70 years old at time of taking office), the old CSS chairman. Out of the 454 days he held office, his last 359 (79%) were spent in the healers' building, as he had very bad kidney problems. And so a man who outlived him on both ends was next...a (later heavy) smoker since 9 years old who could barely stammer the dedication at Andropov's funeral. Out of the 359 days that he held office, 93 days were spent at the healers'.
Then came Gorbachiov, who was more healthy (54 years old at time of taking office).
Now, H. Clinton, a 68 year woman, has had some health problems showed, and possibly more that are left unsaid (as they were somewhat in Russia).
