Is the presidential race truly a survival of the fittest?
August 9, 2016
One question is top of mind, even to those Americans who have lost their minds when it comes to kindness, compassion, respect for fallen soldiers and other qualities we value as a democracy: Who is fit to be president of the United States?
However, my question is: Who is fit, period? After watching both Republican and Democratic conventions -- up close to the TV, and very personal -- I began digging into what's been reported about Clinton's and Trump's wellness routines. After all, president of the United States is a huge job. Strong mental focus and physical well-being are required, and both are undeniably linked to the amount of exercise you get, the quality of the food you eat, how much you sleep and how you deal with incalculable amounts of stress.
