Why Hillary Clinton ?



We've found that a vote for Hillary is not only just a good vote, but that she may be one of the most highly qualified presidential candidates this country has ever seen.


6 reasons why Hillary Clinton is the best presidential candidate ever

We often hear how a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for the “lesser of two evils.” Much of the public's negative perceptions of her is generated by the right-wing hate machine that's incessantly harping about Benghazi, Clinton's emails and how “Hillary is a liar.”

The result is voter apathy, especially among voters below the age of 30.

You might be surprised, then, to discover that Hillary Clinton has some really impressive qualities, and we're not just referring to her flair for pant suits.

We've found that a vote for Hillary is not only just a good vote, but that she may be one of the most highly qualified presidential candidates this country has ever seen. Here are six good reasons to vote for Hillary Clinton:

1. Impeccable Background, Experience and Qualifications

Qualifications? She's got a few. In fact, it's astonishing how well-groomed Hillary is for the role of POTUS. Take a look at her stacked resume:

In college, she was elected senior class president of Wellesley College. She graduated with honors from Yale Law School.

She worked on presidential campaigns for Barry Goldwater (1964), George McGovern (1972) and Jimmy Carter (1976), all progressives in their day.

While Bill Clinton was Governor, she co-founded the Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families.

In 1988 and 1991, the National Law Journal named her one of the top 100 most powerful lawyers in America.

She was first lady for eight years. She served as U.S. Senator from New York, and she served as U.S. Secretary of State under Obama.

2. Environment

Hillary Clinton does not deny that climate change is real. Her commitment to the environment goes back decades, and as President, she has promised to make environmental protection a top priority.

She wants to repeal Big Oil subsidies, stop the tax giveaways to gas companies and put the brakes on drilling in the Arctic. With our children's welfare in mind, she wants to invest in clean energy, big time.

Her ambitious goals include installing more than a half billion solar panels across the country by the end of her first term. Also, she wants every American home to be running on renewable energy within 10 years of her taking office.

3. Marijuana Legalization

The Democratic Party endorsed a historic groundbreaking initiative calling for legalization of marijuana and its removal from the controlled substance list. The amendment reads:

“Because of conflicting laws concerning marijuana, both on the federal and state levels, we encourage the federal government to remove marijuana from its list as a Class 1 Federal Controlled Substance, providing a reasoned pathway for future legalization.”

4. Health Care

Hillary Clinton's mandate has always been health care. Back in the '90's, when she was FLOTUS, Hillary fought a pitched battle against special interests and insurance companies who tried to derail her health care reforms. She won the battle to pass the Children's Health Insurance Program, which today insures 8 million kids.

Hillary is a staunch supporter of the Affordable Care Act, which brings just that – affordable health care to more than 20 million people. She is in favor of allowing people over 55 years old to buy into Medicare.

Pharmaceutical companies are bent on jacking up the price of prescription medication, with an increase of 2.5 percent in 2013 to 12.6 percent in 2014. Hillary is demanding lower drug costs for working families and seniors, and she has promised to continue the fight if elected president.

5. Supreme Court / Second Amendment/ Gun Control

Our next president will appoint at least one Supreme Court Justice, so it goes without saying that progressives should vote for Hillary. But it behooves conservatives to consider Hillary as well.

Conservative issues, including gun control, religious freedom, the death penalty and Supreme Court nominations are not secure in the hands of a President Trump.

Conservative law professors Yoo and Rabkin wrote in a Los Angeles Times  op-ed piece that “Conservatives who are indulging delusions about a Trump presidency are fantasizing even more about the Supreme Court.”

They note that Trump has “flip-flopped on numerous core issues, such as the minimum wage, tax rates and entitlement reform.” Even when he announced his list of judges, Trump back-peddled on his commitment, saying “At a minimum, we will keep people within this general realm.”

Trump's handling of the gun control agenda should be a concern for conservatives as well. When Trump called on Second Amendment backers to shoot Hillary, it did not help their cause. This merely paints them as extremists instead of the responsible, law-abiding citizens the majority of them are.

Hillary wants to maintain our Second Amendment rights, but with responsible safety measures in place, like comprehensive background checks.

6. Foreign Policy

When you ask a Trump supporter what they don't like about Hillary Clinton, they'll invariably say “Benghazi.” Republicans have been pushing the Benghazi attack argument for years, implying that Clinton was complicit in some criminal cover-up, but the House Select Committee On Benghazi has cleared her of any criminal intent.

If anything, the attack on Benghazi demonstrates the volatility of the world in which we live. Trump's response to such threats has been simplistic and bellicose, from wanting to nuke ISIS to expressing a desire to arm Japan with nuclear weapons.

As Secretary of State under Obama, Clinton has real-world experience negotiating with foreign leaders. Obama was, in large part, elected to pull us out of war zones like Iraq and Afghanistan. Hillary has promised to continue Obama's foreign policy agenda, defeat ISIS and enforce the Iran nuclear agreement.
