The media alert came in this morning.  It begs the questions: Is Bernie healthy enough to run for president?  Is he too old to run for president.  And it raises the same questions of Joe Biden.  Both men are in their mid-70s.  Bernie is 78.

TheLiberalOC wishes a speedy recovery for Senator Sanders.
