But what about her health problems? What about her migraines? These are a serious medical matter, one she has not fully addressed. The record shows that she missed a number of House votes because of the migraines. Nevertheless, she has declined to answer more detailed questions, release her medical records or respond to reports that she was hospitalized several times.
Bachaman’s supporters argue that the scrutinycarries a whiff of misogyny, okaying into stereotypes of women as mentally weak. But voters have a right to know about the health of would-be presidents. If anything, when it comes to sharing medical information, it would be sexist to hold Bachman to lower expectations.
Once I had a couple of colleagues who suffered from migraines. When the migrqaines hit they locked their doors and sometimes did not appear for three days.
What if Bachman has a severe migraine and the nuclear phone rings in the middle of the night?
Should Bachman come clean on her migraines?
What do you think?
