Because Bubbe, Zeydah and my Republican father all do

Okay, this is actually shocking.  I’ve lived my entire life and I’ve never seen my father, who is now 88, prefer a democrat for president.  He’s never had the slightest inclination to even remotely consider any democratic candidate, as far as I know.  My sisters and I have had many chances to try to pry…

Because even the Bush family can’t stand Trump

According to an article published in Politico entitled, “George H.W. Bush to vote for Hillary Clinton,” Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend reported that she met with the former president and he told her that he would be voting for Hillary Clinton.  Even though he had intended to merely distance himself from Trump by remaining silent and…

Hillary isn’t perfect but . . . show me who is?

Hillary isn’t perfect.  She makes mistakes.  Then she learns from them.  When she falls down, she doesn’t cry and whine; she brushes herself off and goes back at it.  When she loses, she shows good sportsmanship.  When she wins, she doesn’t gloat and strut, she gets down to work.  She gets no credit for these…

An able leader since the ’60s

The first time Hillary was president was when she became class president at Wellesley.  Even in her early twenties in college, Hillary was willing to put herself out in a leadership role, work hard for votes and do a good job listening to both her constituents as well as the established governing bodies. Michael Kruse…

Because we are optimistic, not nihilistic

When Trump goes on to ask Russian hackers to continue their apparent assaults on an American election by finding more of Clinton’s emails, even as a wan joke, he takes the side of the arsonists while attacking his opponent for a fire code violation. Today, for the first time in its twenty-five year history, WIRED…

Because we reject fascism

Our goal for WISH has long been to share our belief in Hillary’s awesomeness.  It was never our goal to focus on Hillary’s opponents.  Nor were we expecting to have to defend American Democracy.  Nevertheless, we care about the kind of America that we will have after the election. Donald Trump is pretty much the…

Because Trump is not an option

  I haven’t really known what I will do in this election, as a Republican woman with a long-standing, seemingly inbred distrust of Hillary Clinton.  I was rather enthralled with Carly Fiorina as a candidate and had the sense that, were Carly to succeed in her bid to run as the Republican nominee against Hillary,…

Because she is NOT a security threat, unlike Trump

It is just not the norm for high-level U.S. security professionals to come out and endorse one candidate because the other candidate poses a threat to national security. However, Donald Trump, who security insiders think has been turned into an unwitting shill for Vladimir Putin because of a little flattery, is scaring more than just…

Because she has the patience of a saint

Hillary is asked time and time again, “What is it about you that pushes people’s hot button?”  The answer is pretty simple: She is a smart, capable woman and she aspires to make a difference in the world. The real question should be put to the NRC: What is it about Hillary that you fear…

Because #he’s with her

President Obama gives Hillary one of the finest endorsements ever provided by a sitting president to a candidate.  He did so enthusiastically right after the primaries with the below video.
