To The Daily Sun,
I hear it everywhere. People say they are having a hard time deciding which major presidential candidate they will vote for, and that they don't "like" either candidate.
I have no such problem and am frankly dismayed that so many do. Of the two major candidates only Hillary Clinton has the experience, temperament, and character to be president. Everything else is just drama. And we do not have to "like" either of the candidates. As Oprah recently said they're "not coming to your house for dinner." But if you must think in those terms, I again see no comparison.
Hillary is "likable enough" as Obama famously said, but Donald J. Trump is thoroughly despicable in ways too numerous to list in a short letter to the editor.
We are not voting for Ms or Mr. Congeniality. We are voting for the leader of our nation and of the greatest and most important nation in the world today. Not only does our future hang on this, but also the fate of our allies and of our enemies.
Let us start by asking which candidate even knows the difference between our allies and our enemies. This is reality folks, not a reality show. And it is an easy choice. Based on experience, temperament, and character, there is only on candidate qualified to be our next president, Hillary Clinton.
But voting for Hillary will not be enough. In order for her to be able to accomplish anything significant in Washington, we will also need to bring the Senate and House back into balance so that small groups of "never evers" cannot bring our prized system of government to a standstill. To help restore sanity to Washington we need to also vote for Maggie Hassan and Carol Shea Porter.
It's that simple.
