Hillary Clinton is knowledgeable, experienced, loyal

I have female friends who normally vote for Democrats, but they have told me that they will not vote for Hillary Clinton. It isn’t because they don’t trust her or because she is part of the establishment, but because she didn’t leave Bill when he was caught lying about having sex in the Oval Office.

First, I always thought that staying in a marriage, even when in trouble, is a positive action. Keeping the family together and working things out is an achievement. It certainly wasn’t the first time that Hillary faced that situation. Why would she have done anything different from before?

It’s difficult to understand why women are so unhappy with Hillary Clinton that they would not vote for the only candidate who is knowledgeable, experienced and capable of fulfilling the duties of a president and loyal to her family. A divorce wouldn’t have been any better, because the scandal would have just grown even larger.

Finally, it makes no sense to me why any woman would pass up Hillary and vote for Donald Trump, who is seriously misogynistic, racist and ignorant of how Washington, D.C., works. It’s cutting off your nose to spite your face!
