The Washington Post has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president
On Thursday, the Washington Post's editorial board announced its endorsement for Hillary Clinton.
The board wrote, "IN THE gloom and ugliness of this political season, one encouraging truth is often overlooked: There is a well-qualified, well-prepared candidate on the ballot. Hillary Clinton has the potential to be an excellent president of the United States, and we endorse her without hesitation."
Donald Trump is "uniquely unqualified as a presidential candidate," noted the media outlet. However, it also acknowledged how many voters feel about Clinton, "We recognize that many Americans distrust and dislike Ms. Clinton...[she] is inclined to circle the wagons and withhold information, from the closed meetings of her health-care panel in 1993 to the Whitewater affair, from the ostensibly personal emails she destroyed on her own say-so after leaving the State Department to her reluctance to disclose her pneumonia last month."

Furthermore, the board wrote, "And no one will accuse Ms. Clinton of an excess of charisma: She has neither the eloquence of President Obama nor the folksy charm of former president George W. Bush or, for that matter, her husband...But maybe, at this moment in history, that last weakness is also a strength. If Ms. Clinton is elected, she will attempt to govern an angrily divided nation, working with legislators who in many cases are determined to thwart her, while her defeated opponent quite possibly will pretend her victory is fraudulent."
The Post describes Clinton as "dogged, resilient, purposeful and smart."
