Our View: For president, Hillary Clinton | The New Mexican

The New Mexican

Gadzooks! New Mexico presidential primary voters will go to the polls on June 7 and it’s almost certain that the Democratic nominee for president is still undecided.

New Mexicans must take advantage of the race still being in play and turn out to vote for the next president of the United States. That’s right, the next president. Whoever emerges as the Democratic nominee — and we believe it will be Hillary Clinton — must win in November. The nation simply can’t afford a Trump presidency.

However, this is not an endorsement encouraging folks to vote against Trump. This is a call to vote for Hillary Clinton. No one will fight for men, women and children, take a punch, then get back up, harder or longer than Hillary Clinton. She is a person of purpose, with an unbelievable work ethic and incredible intellect. She has been unfairly denigrated over decades of GOP-fueled attacks.

That mud has stuck, and like her opponent, she is deeply unpopular despite being ahead in the fight for her party’s nomination against Sen. Bernie Sanders. She is leading in pledged delegates, popular vote and is the choice of party superdelegates. Because of Democratic Party rules, Sanders is unlikely to catch her, even if he takes the battle to the actual convention. That might prove disappointing to his supporters, but we trust — just as Hillary supporters did in 2008 — they will put the country first and work hard to elect the first female president of the United States. Sanders himself said, “By the way, on her worst day, Hillary Clinton will be an infinitely better candidate and president than the Republican candidate on his best day.”
