Michelle Obama hits the campaign trail and candidates’ health takes center stage

First Lady Michelle Obama campaigned for Hillary Clinton in battleground Virginia on Friday, proving to be an effective surrogate for her husband’s former secretary of state. Meanwhile, both Clinton and Donald Trump answered questions about their health this week, but a candidate’s health is often a determination of their fitness to serve as president. And The Washington Post recently spoke to voters about whether Trump’s “Make America Great Again” message resonates or if they feel the country is already great. Jim Tankersley describes the “deeply ingrained pessimism” among many Americans.
