Where are Palin’s medical records?

"Where are Palin’s medical records?"

In an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams last week, Palin said — apparently to the surprise of her staff — that she would release her full medical records soon. On Sunday, the campaign told ABC News the release would happen “early this week.” Noting that “today is Wednesday,” ABC is wondering, “What’s the hold up?

ABC News has asked every day this week about the status of the release of information and received no updates from the campaign. It is unclear what is holding things up. [...]

Aides suggested privately that there was nothing to hide in the records, but that it was simply taking a while to call doctors and round up the appropriate information to release.

But an entire week?

Ignoring the call of journalists and thousands of physicians, McCain has also refused to release his full medical records.
