Why #I'mWithHer



Too important to ignore - Rolling Stone's endorsement of Hillary Clinton.

"We are at the culmination of a decades-long effort by the right wing to take over the government. Historian Sean Wilentz told this story in Rolling Stone. The House, the Senate and, until a month ago, the Supreme Court are under the thumb of special interests and the extremely wealthy, who seek to roll back decades and decades of legislative progress that have furthered "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." And most horrifying of all, they would stop the world's last-minute effort to fight climate change, where the stakes are the fate of civilization as we now know it.


When I consider what's in their hearts, I think both Clinton and Sanders come out on the side of the angels; but when I compare their achievements in the past decades, the choice is clear. This is not the time in history for a "protest vote."

Clinton is far more likely to win the general election than Sanders. The voters who have rallied to Sanders during the primaries are not enough to generate a Democratic majority in November. Clinton will certainly bring them along, and add them to the broad coalition that Democrats have put together in the past to take the presidency, as did Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
On the question of experience, the ability to enact progressive change, and the issue of who can win the general election and the presidency, the clear and urgent choice is Hillary Clinton."

  2. I'm glad he's pulled the conversation left. (Not crazy about the latest fossil fuels attack though...)

  4. Weak on gun control..,and hoping for an uprising that I don't think will happen (sadly) ...people get excited for the presidential election, but instantly lose steam, and focus on other stuff...don't even bother to vote in the midterm election and then we get a congress like the one we have now.
