What will voters do with all that health information?

How do we process whatever detailed medical data the two candidates might provide? Perhaps if the records revealed that Clinton was addicted to prescription painkillers or that Trump had spent a few months in a mental institution, that might be useful information to have in deciding which candidate to vote for.

It is interesting to contemplate, as a mental exercise, what Democrats, who are high-handedly chiding Republicans for their spineless refusal to condemn their candidate, would do if they were riding the same train. Is there any equivalent situation imaginable in which fringe Democrats might succeed in nominating a presidential candidate so loathsome that middle-of-the-road Democrats couldn’t stomach him?
