If Clinton had been facing a formidable Republican opponent – Ohio Gov. John Kasich, say – this would have been an entirely different general election. But she’s facing Trump. And that alone should make the decision as easy as pie.
On Election Day, the informed, practical, experienced, highly intelligent and reliable Clinton will be on the ballot against a huckster, an entertainer whose act, so distressing from its opening in June of last year, has been increasingly difficult to endure over the past 16 months.
What would be best for Clinton – and the nation – is a convincing win in which she handily dispatches Trump.
