To The Daily Sun,
If I ask myself, "what is the most important issue facing our country today," what measurement should I use? As a senior citizen, I am fortunate to have health care. Will my children and grandchildren have that available? Will Social Security be solvent, college affordable, gun safety a requirement, equality in all arenas a given?
I am enthusiastic that I have the opportunity to support a candidate for president who is best qualified to deal with the complexities of the office. And though it is a bonus, that fact that she is a woman is not the reason I support Hillary Clinton. She has developed relationships with foreign leaders as Secretary of State and First Lady, worked with domestic partners in the Senate, and demonstrated dignity and respect in times of difficulty. These are many of the reasons Hillary is my choice for the Democratic nominee for president.
Intelligence is a strong prerequisite for the presidency, and her skills in applying that knowledge are just as important. The way Hillary stood strong and articulate with firm resolve for eleven hours as the House Representatives questioned her demonstrates her ability to remain cool under extreme pressure.
At a time of constant exposure, first appearances count. Boisterousness is not considered a plus. We are scrutinized nationally and internationally on a daily basis. Hillary Clinton is the most able to lead us going forward. I hope you will vote for her on Primary Day.
