29. Hilary Clinton: Outstanding

23 Oct

After watching the recent Democratic debate and the House hearing on Benghazi, I saw a person who is articulate, logical, reasonable and in great control.  As I listened to her answers I was reminded of our past President Clinton, who I thought was one of the best speakers I have ever heard.

I admit that for a while I was enchanted with Bernie Sanders because I loved his message.  At first I thought he became a candidate to emphasize a point, but as his popularity increased I began to take his candidacy seriously.  After the two events mentioned above, however, I tend to favor Hilary because she seems most competent, knowledgable and strong. Even her emotion was balanced and appropriate.  She laughed when Republican Martha Roby asked her if she slept alone (all night) on the night of the event.  She was slightly annoyed, angry, amused, tired, happy, ernest, patient, and mostly calm.  Her strength over the 11 hours of badgering during the House hearing, is amazing.

Bernie has provided a wonderful service in pushing the entire party more to the left, forging a path towards real economic equality.  I now have restored my original analysis of Bernie’s candidacy, someone who is trying to shift policy and emphasize his (great) ideas.  But I think that Clinton, if nominated, is more likely than Sanders to win the presidential election.
