Letter to the Editor
One requirement of being a good president is to be a leader rather than a follower. Hilary Clinton is such a leader. Barak Obama, John Edwards, Bill Richardson, and Joe Biden caved into internal party pressure and took their names of the ballot in the Michigan primary. The Democratic party insiders think that the people in Iowa and New Hampshire have a superior influence on the outcome of the primary than other states do. Who are these Democratic insiders? Why should what they want take precedent over free and fair elections? Who are they to decide that the citizens of Michigan don’t get to vote?
It’s now clear the Obama, Edwards, Richardson, and Biden are just puppets of the Democratic political machine. The party says frog and they say how high. And it’s easy for them to drop out of Michigan because Hillary has a huge lead there and was going to win anyway. Hillary sees a bigger picture where party insiders don’t call the shots and give some states more influence than other states. That’s leadership. She stands up for what is right, not what the party insiders tells her to do. That’s why I think she’ll make a good president.
