On Sunday, March 20, 2016, former U.S. President Bill Clinton campaigned in Arizona with former representative Gabby Gifford and her husband Mark Kelly, where Clinton stood behind the couple as they gave their introduction speech, and his appearance has been described as listless and disconnected with what was going on around him.
This is not the first time one of Bill Clinton's campaign appearances has had people talking and wondering if he isn't suffering from some very serious health issues, other than just normal aging (Clinton is 69 years old), as evidence by reports in January 2016 of his hands trembling while speaking at an event in Iowa as well as his voice cracking and hoarse, casuing many to wonder if he wasn't suffering from Parkinson's Disease.

According to the Huffington Post, Clinton has addressed the the issue of his hand tremors back in 2013, indicating that has has a "condition" that comes with the aging process, but the article didn't reveal what that condition is.
“I have a condition that sometimes you get with aging,” Clinton said while speaking at an event associated with the Humana Challenge golf tournament, which is sponsored by the Clinton Foundation. “You may have noticed it; my hand has a little tremor when I’m tired and a lot of people do when they’re older.”
Clinton revealed his initial worry that the tremor could be related to Parkinson’s, a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement and sometimes starts with slight tremor in one hand.
“The first time it happened, I had to go get myself checked to make sure I didn’t have Parkinson’s [disease],” Clinton said.
Via Healthline we see there are a variety of medical contditions that can cause the type of hand tremors see in January, which include but are not limited to; stroke; traumatic brain injury; Parkinson's disease, which is a degenerative disease caused by loss of dopamine-producing brain cells; multiple sclerosis, which is a condition in which your immune system attacks your brain and spinal cord and; alcoholism.
Not only is the health of a former U.S. president newsworthy in and of itself, but the fact that his wife is the frontrunner for the Democrats in the race for the highest office in the land, the presidency, makes it even more so.
Hillary Clinton also has been rumored to have some health issues, specifically a "chronic" cough that goes back to 2008, that appears to be getting worse as she has suffered severe coughing fits during campaign appearances.

In early January Breitbart News reported that according to law enforcement officials, Hillary Clinton's health problems go far beyond a "chronic" cough, with some asserting she suffered a brain injury that even impacts her ability to walk at times.
......Both of them told me the same thing, that after her speeches, whether she did a talk or a policy speech, she had to sit behind – she would come off the podium backstage – and have to sit and rest before making it back to the car because she was so fatigued, dizzy and disoriented.
Cardillo said these two security officials don’t know each other and do not live in the same state, but “their stories were almost identical.”
That report was followed with a more recent report about Hillary Clinton refusing to allow press to take shots of her boarding her private jet, with journalists like the political producer for CNN Politics tweeting "Campaign won't allow press to shoot video of HRC getting on/off jet. Tell reporters to get on their plane before Clinton will board hers," in late February.
NBC News producer Monica Alba confirmed that report with her own tweet on February 27, 2016, stating "Clinton staff won't allow press to shoot her boarding private jet. Instructed us to get on our separate plane before she got out of the car."
The same day Jennifer Epstein, Bloomberg Politics correspondent covering Hillary Clinton and the Democratic primary, reported "Press wanted to watch Clinton board her plane. But they told us she would not be getting out of her car until we got on our separate plane."
