Yes, if she had difficulty emptying her bladder then straight cathing her would be recommended and not putting in a foley catheter. Yes, urinary stasis can cause urine to back up into the kidney, but catheter bags backing up to the bladder can also be a problem, it increase the risk of bladder infection which would happen to someone like her that is required to be in the public view for hours on end without a chance of emptying her bag.
The bag exists for people who can change it out regularly, it usually used in combination with the bigger bags for people who want easier mobility. If Hillary can have time to empty out her catheter bag, she can do the same for a diaper. Also irritation is usually associated with bed ridden patients. The moisture from wearing urine soaked diapers and immobility leads to pressure ulcer and urine on those ulcer might lead to skin irritation. But that is not a problem Hillary would be facing from the way she moves about.
I have first had experience with this type of patients, I have worked in nursing for a while now, I did my capstone project when graduating nursing school on pressure ulcers and I read about issues like this when writing my project. I really don't think she would wear a leg bag.
