I don't know why we don't hear of more stories like this from the campaign trail, about candidates, handlers and the press:
Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, was treated and released at Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa Saturday night after becoming ill during a campaign stop here earlier in the day.
Those are endless days of travel, noise, food on the run, standing, smiling, greeting, press and heckling.

I've traveled a bit. I'd be a stinking, bloated mass of digestive discomfort, swollen and sore feet, aching back, neck tension and headaches. I'd pick up every little bug from every snot-nosed child everywhere. My temper would be hair-trigger and my face would be sore. And I'm younger than a lot of people on the trail.

Shove it, indeed.

"Lyman, honey, will you bring me another milk punch, please?"
