Hillary Clinton, far more popular than her embattled husband, had become a one-woman campaign machine.Clinton developed a blood clot behind her right knee, prompting the White House doctor to recommend hospitalization and a week of bed rest.Determined to stay on the campaign trail, Clinton settled on an alternative: A nurse would travel with her to administer the medicine needed to monitor her health. Nearly two decades later, Clinton's desire to work through illness – and penchant for keeping her health secret – has helped cause the most damaging 48-hour period in her presidential campaign and given fresh ammunition to GOP rival Donald Trump. The decision to keep going was one that Clinton, who suffers seasonal allergies that can become a vicious cough, came to regret.The incident follows a long pattern, with Clinton paying a price, both physically and politically.Trump has seized on those concerns, often questioning Clinton's stamina and energy.That infuriates Clinton's friends and former aides, who cite dozens of stories about her simply refusing to take a sick day.Tanden recalled a time when Clinton, then a New York senator, refused to cancel a public service announcement she was scheduled to tape with Sesame Street even though she was sick.
