Philadelphia Daily News endorses Hillary for President

-snip-

Despite being polar opposites politically, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are two sides of the same coin; noisy, radical curmudgeons who embody many people's disaffection with the political status quo. In both cases, their followers project far more on to them than they offer or could ever deliver.

And then there's Hillary Clinton. She's is a canvas, too, but many project either far less on to her than what she might deliver - or they project their negative feelings about her husband, or her power. She's the anti-Bernie; called by many a "bad candidate," "unlikeable," even "unqualified."

A key fact is that people have described her this way for decades: When she attempted the massive job of reforming health care - as first lady. When she ran for and won the U.S. Senate, where she was more effective in eight years than Sanders has been in his 26 years in Congress. When she first ran for president against Obama. When she became Obama's secretary of state, logging in nearly a million miles of travel and restoring the credibility of the U.S. foreign policy. And again as presidential candidate . . . one who, by the way, has won nearly 700 more delegates toward the nomination than her rival.

Today, she's more accomplished than any other candidate and, in our view, most qualified to lead the country with tenacity and intelligence.

2. Tuesday is shaping up to be a sweep, 5 wins for Clinton.

 

Do we get to write 10,000 threads about how "she won 6 of the last 6 primaries" then? I sure hope so.
