[QUOTE=LeeAnn76;3769569]...Cindy McCain has high bp----a few years ago she was exercising and had lost weight and stopped taking her bp meds---and she had a stroke. ...

I think it may be important to point out that Cindy McCain was/is addicted to vicodin and to percocet....long term abuse of at least one of these meds can lead to hypertension and stroke. We don't know this woman's heath history, but I think it may be misleading to imply that her stroke occurred because she stopped taking her bp meds as that may be only part of the story.
