Republican Brent Scowcroft backs Clinton

CNN)Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, received an endorsement Wednesday from a heavyweight foreign policy adviser to Republican presidents.

Brent Scowcroft, who served as National Security Adviser to Presidents George H. W. Bush and Gerald Ford, and who worked in the White House of Presidents Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, said Clinton "brings truly unique experience and perspective to the White House."
His endorsement was released hours after the Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump launched a broad attack on Clinton's experience, honesty and foreign policy experience in a 40-minute speech. Scowcroft directly rebutted Trump's claim that Clinton does not have the temperament to lead, citing her experience working on high-pressure issues such as Iran and Israel.
"She brings deep expertise in international affairs and a sophisticated understanding of the world, which I believe are essential for the commander-in-chief," Scowcroft said.

Have enough brains to see just how bad Trump would be. I sure hope all those who claim to be Democrats, and are pushing the "I won't vote for Hillary, realize just how stupid it would be to not vote, or as some say they will do, vote for Trump.

I am reluctant to say that HRC will win in a landslide .. but it looks as if that will be the case. Even Republicans are afraid of the consequences of a Trump win.
