Mary Matalin: Hillary's Health Woes Her Own Fault

Pneumonia-plagued Hillary Clinton has been "careless and reckless" in taking care of herself on the campaign trail, Mary Matalin tells Newsmax TV.

And the veteran Republican consultant says she speaks from experience from her stints as adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney and campaign director for President George H.W. Bush — both of whom had their own serious health issues.

"[Cheney] had been dealing with his heart issues since he was 37. He knew what to do and he knew how to respond immediately. If he had a twitch in his little finger, he knew what to do," Matalin said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"[Clinton] seems to be irresponsibly exactly the opposite. Whatever they're telling her to do, she excuses that advice. I think that's another indication of careless and reckless, negligent behavior, which seems to be her MO."

In the case of George H.W. Bush, Matalin said: "He had Graves' disease at the end of the '92 campaign and people who are running for president do have a grit that is way beyond anything that we have even though we all know how to play hurt and go to work sick and such.

"They just keep going and it's a detriment to their ultimate health … Bush was pushing us so hard when he was so sick, we all got walking pneumonia on the plane and the doctor on Air Force One quarantined all of us."

Which should be a lesson to Clinton, who was forced to leave Sunday's ceremony commemorating the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York City because she felt faint. It was later revealed she has walking pneumonia.

"It is incumbent upon the candidates who want to run for the leader of the free world to assure us that their health is sufficient and up to the task," Matalin told Malzberg.

"[The] Clinton operation certainly didn't know how to handle this one and given that it's not like she's not been ill or had health issues before, you would have thought they would have had a better response mechanism in place to deal with something like this because it looks like it's going to be recurrent."
