Hillary Clinton’s precarious health has been a topic for many politics watchers in America, especially given her recent “short-circuiting.” Now, yet another short-circuit has drawn some retroactive curiosity, this time from her Democrat National Convention acceptance speech.
In a piece for The Christian Post, Rev. Mark H. Creech noted that Hillary had blanked on the national motto during her address in Philadelphia.
The questions came from a portion of the speech in which Hillary talked about the Founders believing we were stronger united than divided.

“Our Founders embraced the enduring truth that we are stronger together,” Hillary said. “America is once again at a moment of reckoning. Powerful forces are threatening to pull us apart. We have to decide whether we will work together so we all can rise together. Our country’s motto is ‘E Pluribus Unum: Out of many we are one.’ Will we stay true to that motto?”
A stirring moment, one might say. Here’s the problem: “E Pluribus Unum” isn’t our nation’s motto. It’s “In God We Trust.”
The motto isn’t just a piece of McCarthy-era conservatism, as detractors claim. It actually derives from the last stanza of “The Star-Spangled Banner”: “”And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust,’ And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
Rev. Creech thought that the explanation was part of the secularization of America, although it could be just as easily explained by Hillary’s declining health.
We’ve heard reports from tons of worried medical professionals — including Dr. Drew Pinsky, he of “Celebrity Rehab” and “Loveline” fame — about Hillary’s health. She herself admits that she “short-circuited” and has visibly frozen in public.
While I’m not exactly a brilliant-yet-misanthropic TV doctor with a cane and an opiate problem, I would say that this doesn’t look good for a presidential candidate. It’s just as likely that Hillary simply couldn’t recognize the nation’s motto.
It’s becoming clear that the stress of the campaign may be too much for Clinton — and what does that imply about her ability to handle the stress of actually governing
