Day 29 – My journey to find reasons to vote for Hillary rather than just against Trump.
She is loyal and she really does walk the walk.
Today seems like a good day to look at her relationship with Huma Abedin. Huma is a Muslim woman, married to, but as of today, separated from, Anthony Wiener. Hillary hired Huma as an intern at 19. She is now vice-chair of her campaign, and possibly, the closest person to her.
Being this close to Clinton does mean that Huma has undergone a heightened level of scrutiny and commentary, and – so far – has also been convicted of nothing more than possibly marrying poorly.
Hillary has not let criticism and inquiry about Huma’s faith diminish the relationship or trust. She hired, promoted and trusted a young Muslim woman and has put her in a unique position of power.
This Vanity Fair article reveals some of the ambiguities of this relationship as well as its strength.
