....................
................. So the question becomes, which Democrat would do it best?

In politics, “best” isn’t necessarily “perfect” – nobody should expect perfection in a presidential candidate. But what we can and should expect is a proven record of confronting difficult issues, in a way that reflects the reality of our two-party political system. When our system works well, it operates on the principle of cooperation and compromise. Reasonable people can disagree on issues, yet succeed in reaching solutions through respectful engagement and discussion.

Hillary Clinton has proven she has that capability: a progressive candidate who has a history of accomplishments in every role she has assumed, whether as first lady, senator or secretary of state. In supporting her candidacy, we support a candidate who is determined to bridge the gap between parties and work for all Americans, not just the wealthy and well-connected.

While everybody may not agree with her on every issue, it is undeniable that she has demonstrated a mastery of a broad range of issues that currently confront our country. Her performance during the Democratic candidates’ debates, and during her 11 hours as a witness in the feckless Benghazi hearing make that clear. She will need no on-the-job training to understand what needs to be done in addressing problems presented by Russia, China and ISIS.

Hillary Clinton understands that we currently have a broken political system, where the wealthy and well-connected exert outsized influence on public policy. To restore the public’s trust in our democratic process, she has called for aggressive campaign finance reform to restore the voice of the common person in our political system. She has promised to do everything possible to overturn the Citizens United court decision, .............
:..............

Hillary Clinton’s election will help move our country forward both domestically and internationally. She is the one who can do the job best.
