Hillary faints. What does Bill know and when did he know it?

The once and would-be future inhabitant of the White House fainted during a speech today. It does not appear to be serious.

Not that I'm a conspiracy theorist, but is it possible it has got something to do with proximity to Bill Clinton? After all, there is precedent.

The April 17, 1999 Boston Globe describes another prominent Democrat fainting after being in close proximity to Bill:
US Representative Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island also entertained and alarmed the group by recounting how he cut a finger while accompanying the president on Air Force One.

Kennedy said he had been disposing of a paper towel in an ashtray with a movable top, and that he was cut pulling his hand out. Kennedy said the badly bleeding wound was sutured by a presidential physician only two cabins away. He then fainted at the Solomont house, he said, but regained his composure enough to urge the Democrats to push for health care as good as the president's. [Emphasis mine.]
