    On Senator McCain's Health I heard something about his lungs in which was only mention but once, was this an overlook or did I miss understode' for me it would be a concern.

    Thank you.

    I typically enjoy watching your reports, however; your extensive comments regarding John McCain's health was too much. I understand that his age dictates concerns about potential health issues if successful in his bid for the President of the United States. But if you are going to check out his medical history with a magnifying glass, so then should you delve deeply into Senators Clinton and Obama. It would have sufficed to give a summary without going into the specifics. It mentioned he was a smoker for 25 years, but Obama was a smoker too! The press is too invasive and should exercise some sense of decency when reporting. Somehow the thought that the physical limitations McCain endures due to his abuse as a POW would be a reason not to vote for him as President is truly sad. That his inability to raise his arms above his head would limit his ability to become President ludicrous. That he would be punished for his service to his country absurd. For the record, I am a registered democrat, but your report took it too far.

    This should, but I doubt it will, put to rest any questions about McCains health status in regard to his election to President. This makes him a healthy, mature, experienced and capable candidate for the highest office in the land.

    No Obpmination in the White House.
    Write in Hillary
    McCain '08
    Clinton '12/16

    Hello Dr. Gupta,
    I have seen and heard the medical reports that you gave, on Sen. Obama, Biden and McCain. But I have not seen nor heard your medical report on Gov. Sarah Palin. Why is that? Someone from CNN was interviewing her asked her about her medical record and she said that there is nothing there and that maybe one would be released . If she have not released her medical records for review; I would like to know when is she going to release a report on her medical records? The election is just around the corner.
