Why I supported Hillary Clinton

Hillary was (and still is) the most qualified candidate, with 30 years experience helping a majority of the people in this country. She had a broad coalition of support that reflected the growing diversity of this nation. While I would’ve voted for any democratic candidate, I think Hillary’s example of reaching across the aisle would’ve served her well in implementing left-leaning policies with a divided legislature. While I appreciate Bernie Sanders’ pushing the DNC to embrace more populist and less corporate positions, I do not think he would have been able to muster a winning coalition of minority voters or survived rigorous opposition research. My vote was enthusiastically for Hillary.
