Newspaper Endorsements 2

For Hillary Clinton:

The Barre Montpelier News Argus:

The nation is teetering on the precipice of a fateful choice. For president that choice must be Hillary Clinton.

The election of Clinton is necessary, not only to avert the disaster of Donald Trump, but because Clinton has shown through years of public service and the trials of a vicious election campaign that she is a steady, determined, well-prepared and dedicated leader.

Clinton’s leadership qualities tend to be obscured by the grossly offensive behavior of her opponent and by the cloud of puny but inflated allegations that seem always to surround her. She has done what leaders are supposed to do: She has put forth a program of thoughtful, coherent proposals and shown the political skill and character to follow through when elected.

Character is not a word associated with Donald Trump. His failings have been well chronicled, but it is necessary to remind ourselves as Election Day approaches.

Washington state's The Herald:

Instead of urging only for a vote against Trump, we’ll make the case as to why Hillary Clinton deserves your vote and your support for the next four years.

Chief among those reasons is that even Clinton’s considerable ego would not allow her to believe or boast that only she is capable of fixing what’s wrong with America.

Her career for 30 years, from first lady, to U.S. senator to Secretary of State, has been on full display, successes and failures. All of it shows her as someone highly skilled in working with Democrats and Republicans, pragmatically seeking those agreements that can be secured and preparing a path for future accords when they can’t.

The Monterey Herald has no editorial endorsement piece but just a list of candidates the paper endorses.

The Wilmington News Journal:

What is plain to see is Hillary Clinton’s intelligence, patience, poise, charisma, willingness to listen, compassion, and, perhaps most importantly, understanding of our Constitution what it takes to preserve its fundamental values.

Clinton’s experience makes her one of the most dynamic candidates we have seen in the history of the presidency. From lawyer, to child advocate, to secretary of state, to mother, to first lady, to women’s rights advocate, Clinton can directly relate to the experiences of millions of Americans, most notably women. If elected, she would be the first woman to hold the office.

We strongly believe that Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton should be elected the 45th President of the United States of America.

More to come later today or tomorrow morning.
