Why Hillary: Assessing The Pros And Cons, Plus: Gov. Jerry Brown Endorses Old Foe Comments (0)

Aaron Loeb lays out the case for, and the case against, Hillary Clinton in clear prose at Medium.

While he lays out the negatives and positives, you know how sensible it's all going to be from the intro:

There are women alive today in the United States who were born without the right to vote. We are on the verge of nominating the first woman in our history to be a major-party candidate. On the other side, we are on the verge of nominating the first major-party candidate to have never held political office since Eisenhower. Eisenhower beat Hitler. Donald Trump thinks Hitler had a lot of good ideas.

This is not politicking and spinning, this is just reality.

California Gov. Jerry Brown, while praising Sanders, has come out and endorsed Hillary, a week ahead of his state's primary vote:

The general election has already begun. Hillary Clinton, with her long experience, especially as Secretary of State, has a firm grasp of the issues and will be prepared to lead our country on day one. Next January, I want to be sure that it is Hillary Clinton who takes the oath of office, not Donald Trump.

In other news, Trump's actual wealth is given some side-eye by Politico, which suggests he is—yes—rich, but that a great deal of his money is accounted for via creative bookkeeping. Also, slimy Martin Shkreli has un-endorsed Trump, or rather, claims he never really endorsed him in the first place.

6-PACK/politics— Bernie's Scorched-Hillary Campaign + Why The #BernieTrumpDebate Flirtation Should Make You Doubt Bernie + Clinton/Warren? + Hillary Could Lose CA + Is Trump Sinking? + Obama's Hiroshima Embrace! Comments (0)

*widget boy cultureBernie's scorched-earth closer is weakening Hillary: “A wave of polling data established that Sanders really is undermining Clinton’s prospects in the general ...”

*widget boy culture“If Sanders debates Trump, he will lose my support. And he should lose yours, too”: Shocked Sanders supporter on the unlikely-to-occur #BernieTrumpDebate.

*widget boy cultureThe case for Clinton/Warren. Excited by the idea of an all-female ticket, but wonder if people of color will be turned off that she'd pass up Castro, Booker, many others.

*widget boy cultureIt's sinking in for everyone that Hillary could lose CA, which won't mean she isn't the Democratic nominee, just that she will have suffered an embarrassing finish.

*widget boy cultureLet's hope Slate's right on Trump—there is such a thing as bad PR. NY Times says (hopes?) Trump has stumbled in trying to go big; staff disintegrating, paranoid.

*widget boy cultureObama, in history-making Hiroshima visit, embraces A-bomb survivor who also wanted U.S. names on monument to the bombing victims; 12 POWs perished.

Hillary Clinton Slays In NY (But So Does Trump) Comments (0)

Hillary Clinton has scored a decisive victory in the state she represented in the Senate, the state she has called home for many years, New York—she's poised to win by about 13-16%, the kind of solid win that makes it even less likely that Bernie Sanders could ever catch up to her. (I couldn't quite believe that my city would go that strongly for her, but I was wrong—she almost hit 60% in Brooklyn.)

In her glowing victory speech, Clinton joyously thanked New York, pointedly made reference to her campaign winning everywhere—not just the South, as Sanders had recently incorrectly noted—but also took care to state:

To all the people who supported Sen. Sanders, I believe that there is much more that unites us than divides us.

That said, she doubled down on her best line of attack from her most recent (and final?) debate with Sanders:

Under the bright lights of New York, we have seen that it's not enough to diagnose problems, you have to explain how you'd actually solve the problems.

She name checked Roosevelt and Obama, declared that “victory is in sight” and declared that her campaign is now the only one, “Democrat or Republican,” to win more than 10 million votes.

It was a bold, persuasive and—as usual—intelligently crafted speech. She is never phoning it in with a stump speech on special occasions.

Meanwhile, this is the kind of crap still streaming in from some of Sanders's supporters: 

Sanders has gone home to Vermont, apparently to recharge before next week's sure-to-be-tough contests: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. Clinton is ahead in the polls of most of them.

On the Republican side, Trump dominated, but is losing Manhattan to Kasich. Hey, in NYC, even our conservatives aren't that conservative. (Oh, and Ted Cruz learned that “New York values” will deny him any delegates.)

*widget boy cultureMany women pissed at Bernie's characterization of Hillary as “not qualified.” Except for Jane Sanders, a much better wife than Bill Clinton!

She Went From Hillary To Bernie Back To Hillary Comments (0)

Here's why a progressive forsook Hillary for Bernie ... then took it back. P.S. It has nothing derogatory toward Bernie, so lower the pitchfork.

Bernie Catches Flak For Waving Wife Away: DON'T STAND THERE Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-03-27 at 3.45.35 PMSanders did not want his wife literally beside him. (Video still via CNN)

If only Hillary, open primaries and racially diverse populations could be dealt with in this way, Bernie would be home free!

P.S. I wouldn't withhold my vote from the guy over bad optics like this, but it's definitely not as inspiring as the Birdie Sanders moment.

P.P.S. You better believe I will support Sanders wholeheartedly if he somehow magically clinches the nomination, and/or if Hillary discovers a spot on her lung or gets indicted for succeeding while being a woman. (Seriously, though, my reasons for liking her better are not substantial enough that I'd withhold my vote or enthusiasm for the guy. They vote the same something like 93% of the time. It's more about how I imagine their presidencies playing out.)
