Hillary Clinton endorsements - a meteor shower of support

"...Mr Trump would be a terrible president.."- The Economist

Media are savvy about their political endorsements. These "on the historic record" documents of support or opposition to candidates and issues remains for generations of historians to review. Therefore, it's certainly impressive to realize how the overwhelming preponderance of print media support is being showered on Secretary Hillary Clinton for the 2016 election. I believe The Economist endorsement is among the most elite on the record to be added to her growing support list.

November 03, 2016, The Economist endorses Clinton

The Economist

Business magazine The Economist on Thursday endorsed Hillary Clinton, calling her "America's best hope."

"The choice is not hard. The campaign has provided daily evidence that Mr Trump would be a terrible president," the magazine's editorial board wrote.

"He has exploited America’s simmering racial tensions. ... His experience, temperament and character make him horribly unsuited to being the head of state of the nation that the rest of the democratic world looks to for leadership, the commander-in-chief of the world’s most powerful armed forces and the person who controls America’s nuclear deterrent."

The Economist also slammed Donald Trump on his economic, environmental and immigration policies.

"Our vote, then, goes to Hillary Clinton. 

Those who reject her simply because she is a Clinton, and because they detest the Clinton machine, are not paying attention to the turpitude of the alternative," the editorial said.

"Although, by itself, that is not much of an endorsement, we go further. Mrs Clinton is a better candidate than she seems and better suited to cope with the awful, broken state of Washington politics than her critics will admit. She also deserves to prevail on her own merits."

The Economist noted it is not in support of all of Clinton's policies, calling her tax plan "fiddly."

"The scale of these defects, though, is measured in tiny increments compared with what Mr Trump proposes."

The editorial board concluded that it is backing Clinton "partly because she is not Mr Trump, but also in the hope she can show that ordinary politics works for ordinary people — the sort of renewal that American democracy requires."

With the endorsement of the prestigious publication The Economist, the impressive, and growing support for Secretary Hillary Clinton contributes to a meteor shower of thoughtful consideration and confidence in her leadership.
