I support Hillary because she is a thoroughly tested, scandal free candidate. No one in the race to be PresidentÃ‚â€“republican or democratÃ‚â€“has experienced the scrutiny and attacks that Hillary has. I support Hillary because she has shown a willingness to learn from mistakes and has demonstrated a shrewd, nimble intelligence. I have briefed her in private and she knows how to think on her feet, think spontaneously, and be very smart in the process. I also support Hillary because she has more successful time in legislative and executive positions.
This is former CIA agent and current National Security expert extraordinaire Larry Johnson explaining why he’s making the switch from John Edwards to Hillary Clinton. While he mentions in his post that he still has plenty of respect for Edwards, he also says that Hillary is the one who will be ready on Day One to start making change happen. That’s why he’s now making the change to Hillary.
So you agree with Larry here? Do you think it’s important that our next Democratic President actually be well-prepared to make the changes we so need on Iraq, the climate crisis, health care, the economy, and so much more actually happen? Do you think it’s important that we translate nice words about change into real action?
And who do you think is most ready to make change happen as our next President? Do you agree with Larry? Do you think otherwise? Read what he says, then please feel free to come back and talk about it.
