In Our View: Clinton for President

Yet while Clinton once railed about a “vast right-wing conspiracy,” colleagues on both sides of the aisle have praised her for a businesslike, inquisitive approach during her time in both the Senate and at the State Department. Despite her missteps along the way, Clinton has clung to a vision of what America is and what it can be. That vision, at its heart, is not a nation that castigates entire religions and entire genders; it is one that believes in the strength of the American character and the power of American exceptionalism.
