Hillary, the “battle tested” candidate, wins major AZ endorsement.

Editorial: Hillary Clinton has the experience to lead

Editorial board, The Republic | azcentral.com

Hillary Clinton deserves her due.

Not just because she has risen higher than any woman in American politics, but because she is by far the most experienced candidate of any of those running in either party this year. In fact, she is one of the most experienced people to ever run for president.

Clinton will win this race because of qualities she showed as a young woman. While Sanders went off into fantasy land, offering free college to students and a single-payer health-care system, Clinton kept it anchored, proposing subsidized college educations while not tossing the entire bill to taxpayers.

Sanders would add $18 trillion in new spending to a government already badly bloated and in need of budget discipline, according to the Wall Street Journal. Sanders disputes that number, but in an age when entitlement reform is an urgent necessity, Sanders wants to expand entitlements.

Clinton is more real. She proposes large spending of her own, $350 billion on higher education, but requires contributions from students, parents and states. She seems to grasp, more than Sanders, that the American treasury is stressed.

On foreign policy, she is far better equipped to lead than Sanders. Her relationships with world figures would be invaluable in framing America’s outreach beyond our shores. She is reticent to put American troops on the in highly charged conflicts in the Middle East, preferring instead to leave the ground fighting to Middle Eastern allies.

Does The Republic give out Editorial jobs in Dubble Bubble wrappers? Zero education required, must be able to chew and blow.

11. If Hillary were the nominee she would become the most distrusted candidate since Nixon.

 

You guys have welded your brain to the "lesser of two evils" platform. The only person able to compete with Trump in the pathology of lies competition is your imperial goddess of triangulation and political expediency.

13. Hillary supporters have not succumbed to the RW/media distrust campaign.

And we don't consider her the lesser of two evils.

We also don't consider her to be Harry Potter the Wizard or any kind of a savior.

She's an extremely capable and experienced human being, with the expected amount of flaws. She isn't perfect and neither is anyone else, including Bernie-so-pure.

12. They know that imagining you were running

from a non-existent Bosnian sniper does not constitute "battle testing", right?

14. The Arizona Republic is not a major endorsement - lol! Now if she would've gotten the Arizona Star

that would be impressive because they actually report news. And they represent Tucson, the blue part of the state.

The Arizona Republic is known around here as the Arizona Republican.

15. The Republic's circulation puts it at #21 in the country. 2 slots ahead of the Boston Globe.

Their endorsement is a major one. Democrats in the southern part of the state vote, too.

It's funny how Bernie supporters love to scorn Democrats who live further south.
