Day 13 – Unearthing the reasons I’m voting for Hillary and not just against Trump.
Let’s ask the people who work with her what they think.
Steve King (3 days ago – for those who might forget, this is the man who said “non-whites” haven’t contributed to modern culture.) “I’ve sat across the table with Hillary Clinton eye-to-eye, and when you’re working outside of staff and outside of the press, she is somebody I can work with,” King said during a speech at the Des Moines Register’s Soapbox at the state fair.
Kissinger: “She ran the State Department in the most effective way that I’ve ever seen.”
Condoleeza Rice (Meet the Press) “No, look, it’s a unique situation. I think we all see that it’s unique. But my successor, Hillary Clinton, is an extremely talented woman. She is a woman of integrity. She believes in this country deeply. We’ve already had a couple of conversations. I know her from the time she brought her freshman daughter to Stanford for the first time when I was Provost. And she’s going to do this very well.”
Jeb Bush: “Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy. These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.”
Mitch Daniels (former Rep. Governor of Indiana): “She is comprehensively experienced and has advantages that some of the other contenders would have to scramble to match in terms of her exposure to the world and… foreign policy.”
Gov. Mike Huckabee: “I would have great respect for the formidable nature of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. She’s more the policy wonk, the ideologue, less that incredible connector with people that Bill Clinton is…Hillary Clinton is a rock star within the Democratic Party…She’s a policy genius.”
Jon Huntsman (Utah Governor, Ambassador to China): I’ve worked around Hillary Clinton while serving as ambassador to China, and all I can tell you as a Republican is she’s pretty good. She’s smart. She’s hardworking. She – she relates to all kinds of people, and I was very, very impressed working with her as a Republican.
Rick Perry: ‘I think your efforts in trying to reform the nation’s health care system are most commendable.’ ‘I would like to request that the task force give particular consideration to the needs of the nation’s farmers, ranchers, and agriculture workers, and other members of rural communities,’
Arnold Schwarzenegger: ‘I think she is a very very bright woman and very experienced. I think this could be a great move,’
Gen. Petraeus: “She’d make a tremendous President.” “Mrs. Clinton was ‘extraordinarily resolute, determined and controlled’ in the wake of the attack.”
Oh wait, did I choose only Republicans? Did I choose only pretty conservative Republicans? Oops. My bad. I’ll try to be more fair and balanced next time.
I think this says A LOT. Not much need for me to chime in.
