My selection for the Democrat presidential nominee in 2016 is . . .
LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — My selection: Secretary Hillary Clinton. This is a strategic decision that would most likely result in maximum damage to the GOP on election day in November — curtailing their ability to create obstruction, logjam and chaos in Congress — something they said they would do, and have done, since they took Congressional power in 2010. And they’re doing it right now with the death of Justice Scalia. Clinton’s election likely would be the stake in the heart of the GOP — returning it to the hands of moderates, with the tea party finished — the chaotic and divisive voices silenced.
Senator Bernie Sanders, in a perfect world, would be my choice for the top spot on the ballot. Ideologically, I align with him on issues more than Secy. Clinton. But we don’t live in a perfect world. Sander’s utopia is at least a generation away — it’s coming, but history shows it won’t occur in 2016. Mitch McConnell will still be in the Senate and continue to do what he’s done for the last 6 years — obstruction, logjams and chaos. And the House? Likely to keep trying to appeal Obamacare and little else. Millennials need to start getting themselves elected to Congress for Sanders’ ideals to become reality. I really look forward to this.
A ticket with Secy. Clinton at the top will switch more seats to Democrats than Sanders could ever possibly hope for. The Democrats may gain control of the Senate, and with luck, the House, resulting in a total destruction of the Republican party. If there’s ever a person qualified to deal with GOP mudslinging, obstruction and chaos that’s likely to follow in the immediate aftermath, it’s Clinton. She’s been handling this for 30 years.
And finally, the number one reason we elect presidents — they fill vacant seats in the Supreme Court. The likely increase in the number of Democratic seats in Congress from a Clinton leading ticket gives her more leeway with a selection(s) — a much stronger hand than Obama has now. A number of allies on the bench are in fair health and/or wish to retire. A crushing blow to the GOP on election day will allow the Democrats to set the Supreme Court scale towards the left for decades. Hillary Clinton is the one holding a huge sledge hammer to ensure this is done.
Disagree? There’s no need to quibble. If you like Sanders, by all means, vote for him. If you’re looking to give the GOP a crushing blow, vote for Hillary. If you must vote for a Republican, vote for Trump. Your decision.
