Oprah Winfrey says you don’t have to like Hillary Clinton to vote for her. I buy that. I don’t really care for Clinton. But I plan to vote for her, despite her many annoying personal and professional flaws.
She is a far better choice than her flaky opponent. True, I am not convinced she can accomplish all of the high-minded goals — starting with her promise to “make the economy work for everyday Americans, not just those at the top,” but at least she’s been in the federal arena for three decades, knows the territory, and has the leadership ability to put together a team of competent, experienced Cabinet members to carry out her progressive agenda.
