Bill Clinton defends his wife's health:
"First they said she faked her concussion, and now they say she's auditioning for a part on 'The Walking Dead.'"The health of past Presidential contenders has often been a legitimate concern, and in this day and age, candidates do get more scrutiny because of it.
He added, as the audience laughed, "You know, whatever it takes."
Clinton went on to say he was "dumbfounded" by the matter, saying "there's nothing to it" and his wife is probably in "better shape" than he is.
"Now they say she's really got brain damage," he said. "Well, if she does then I must be in really tough shape, because she's still quicker than I am."
Rove, a Fox News analyst and former George W. Bush administration adviser, said in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday that he is not asserting Clinton had brain damage.
But, after comments on the subject were first published in The New York Post, he stressed that Hillary Clinton's health "is going to be an issue" should she run for president in 2016.
"This was a serious deal. She basically was out of action," he said Tuesday. "She spends over a month fighting this. ... And they're not particularly forthcoming."
