Wish her the best but if you want to run a country maybe you ought not engage in activities like skiing, motorcycling, skydiving, etc. Want to stay in shape, go the gym or swim laps in a pool but leave the more risky activities for when you are holding a less responsible position.

Just another “crazy old lady” that thinks she’s indestructible.
She looks like she could use some time in rehab; get some help.
Stay home and tend to business, not make a fool out of yourself.
Must be a requirement of politicians to leave their brains at home.

sangell & whymelord, She was xc skiing, which is safer than walking. And if you happen to fall, snow is a lot softer than concrete. Bush rides mt bikes & Obama plays basketball, both of which are a lot more dangerous. I ruined my ankles playing b-ball but have never gotten seriously hurt xc skiing. And I’m very impressed that she xc skis and hikes. You 2 losers ought to get outside more often.
