Comment Of The Day: Reasons To Vote For Clinton

No, studiously IGNORING what her supporters say they like about Clinton isn’t the same thing as people offering no defense. And since you’ve clearly never met a Green or their disastrous embrace of Nader in 2000, I’d love to hear your excuse for siding with a party with an honest cause that doesn’t tear their party apart.

Here’s why I, a supporter of Sanders, will support Hillary, unreservedly, in November:

She’s supports appointing Supreme Court justices who will move the court to the left and won’t support Citizens’ United.

She supports expanding pre-k solutions for families.

She’s solid on renewables.

She was a good Senator for New Yorkers when I lived in New York.

She supports choice, Planned Parenthood and LGBT issues.

She’s solid on voting rights (since you need to include the things you didn’t like about her husband’s presidency into your case against her, you should probably give a shit about his passing the motor voter bill).

She’s excellent on civil rights.

She’s smart.

She’s wonky enough to try and incrementally improve Obamacare.

She’s a median liberal Democrat to the left of center in her own party, which is my party, which makes this shockingly easy.
