Granny's Beginning To Fade- And Here Comes Grandpa, On The Outside, Plugging Away With His Zimmer

They're saying Hillary Clinton may have a drink problem. Well, perhaps she does, but I don't think we need reach for the bottle to explain why a woman nearing seventy might wilt after standing in the sun for an hour and a half and sometimes have trouble with stairs. Would you expect your granny- or your grandpa- to submit themselves to the merciless treadmill of a US election campaign? Of course not. You'd be afraid of it killing them.

I'm a couple of years younger that Clinton and four years younger than Donald Trump- and I really don't know how they keep going at the pace they do.

Why do they do it to themselves? I can only think it's because power and fame are addictions and they can't stop themselves wanting more. They're like gamblers stood in front of a whizzing, whirring, flash-bulb popping fruit machine. Just one more pull of the lever. Just one more...

Whether these needy, mad, old crows are the sort of people one wants to have running one's country is a question the media is mainly too polite to ask...
