Our View: Choosing in a year of unpleasant choices Hillary Clinton, of course, is a far-from-perfect candidate, and as hacked emails show, she and her team are such ruthless political operators as to border on cynicism.

We have concerns about Clinton too, including her unwillingness to share transcripts of the dozens of highly compensated speeches she made to Wall Street firms; the relationship between major donors to the Clinton Foundation and nations she negotiated with as secretary of state; and her unwillingness to hold press conferences, which demeans the ideal of open government. But Clinton’s experience as a children’s advocate, first lady, U.S. senator, and secretary of state far outweigh Trump’s credentials to become president.
