Cheney's policies not health were a concern

Published 20/09/2016

WHY the concern about Hillary Clinton's cough and Donald Trump's weight?=

Dick Cheney, the bellicose vice-president under George W Bush, suffered the first of five heart attacks at the age of 37.

He later required multiple angioplasties and catheterisations, plus a quadruple bypass, the implantation of a defibrillator, and a heart transplant.

Of course, had he been healthy, he might have advocated different policies.
