Romney campaign black ops, perhaps.

I think we put too much emphasis on the physical robustness of our candidates anyway. A President coping with chronic illness does not mean a non-functioning President, or that there aren't ways for the system to handle things if the President is out of it for brief periods. Look at all that fuss about McCain's health during the campaign. He's still breathing.

FDR would never get elected today. That wheelchair. Also, a President with a chronic but manageable illness might be a more sympathetic and understanding President when it comes to healthcare issues.
