Newspaper Endorsements

Hillary Clinton continues to get more daily newspaper endorsements. If I get any ambition, I will put up more weekly papers and such.

Jersey Journal has the same editorial as the Star Ledger:

Eight years ago, Americans made history by electing our nation's first African-American president, Barack Obama.

Let's make history again by next month electing the first woman to the highest office in our land.

Former Secretary of State, former U.S. Sen. and former first lady Hillary Clinton deserves our ballots not simply because her election will make history. She deserves our ballots because she will bring to the Oval Office unparalleled experience and proven empathy for people of all walks of life. She will bring a vision for the future that is empowering for the vast majority of Americans. And she will bring the strength to see that vision through to reality.

America got its first view of Clinton as a woman of bold action in 1993 when, as first lady, she tackled one of the most daunting issues we face: how to ensure affordable health care in an industry beset by greed.

Stillwater News Press:

Clinton has both the background and the mettle to serve as president and commander in chief. She understands how government works. She is not a loose cannon. If Republicans maintain control of the House, as expected, and possibly the Senate, Clinton will be forced to work with Congress to develop sensible policies for important domestic and international issues facing the country.

Miami Herald:

Let’s make clear what the 2016 presidential election isn’t about:

It is not about choosing between a bad candidate and a worse one. The narrative that Hillary Clinton is the lesser of two evils is patently wrong. Ms. Clinton is a pragmatic, tough-minded woman of accomplishment and political conviction with a demonstrated mastery of policy. She is politically flawed. However, Donald Trump is a damaged human being.

It’s not about an entertaining, shoot-from-the-hip renegade outsider taking on a mainstay of the entrenched political elite. That was Sarah Palin vs. Joe Biden back in 2008. No, Mr. Trump is the elite, one who has managed to talk a good game to fire up frustrated and frightened mostly white Americans with a campaign of hate and xenophobia.

For her part, Ms. Clinton has used her insider status to work aggressively on behalf of the disenfranchised, here and around the world. She has not won every battle, but she fights the good fight, and she fights the right ones in the name of equality and democracy.
