The words of a devout Democrat: “I am not able, under the circumstances we are now facing, to vote for Secretary Clinton.”
Those are the words of Democrat pollster Douglas E. Schoen, who worked for Bill Clinton during his presidency.
He explains his decision not to vote for Hillary Clinton:
“I am now convinced that we will be facing the very real possibility of a constitutional crisis with many dimensions and deleterious consequences should Secretary Clinton win the election. . . in good conscience, and as a Democrat, I am actively doubting whether I can vote for the Secretary of State. . . I remain a Democrat and proud of the work I did for six years for President Bill Clinton between 1994 and 2000 and I write with extreme sadness. But I cannot in the waning days of the election make the case that Secretary Clinton should be elected.”
Only if one believes that Donald Trump would be worse as POTUS than Hillary Clinton should anyone entertain the idea of voting for Clinton.
The problem with making such a judgment is that one doesn’t really know how a person will perform as the President until the person actually is the President. For all we know, Donald Trump might perform well if he were the POTUS.
At the same time, we have no guarantee that Hillary Clinton would abandon her Nixonesque sleaziness if she were to be elected.
Yes, Hillary Clinton is as oily as a politician can be, and while serving as U.S. Secretary of State, she behaved in a way that is unethical at best.
Certainly the Democratic Party could have chosen a better person to be its 2016 presidential nominee. Chuck Schumer would have been a better choice, and he has much more experience as a federal official than Clinton has.
Why Democrats were in awe of Hillary Clinton in the first place is something that this writer just doesn’t understand.
