Even without Trump, I would vote for Clinton

This will be unpopular with almost everyone, but I shall say it nonetheless. Disagree if you will, but don't be nasty :-)

If I were an American, I would vote for Hillary Clinton.

I would not vote for her because she is a safer alternative than Donald Trump, although she is.

I would not vote for her because I agree with everything she has ever done or said, because I don't.

I would vote for her because I believe her to be a good candidate for President. She is capable (dangerous, when you are a woman in the public eye), she is experienced, she has shown more grace than her detractors deserve. She is committed to equality, reducing poverty, and has good economic sense.

I hear the hatred, I hear the fear, I hear the misogyny, I hear the concern. I don't share any of them.
