A close friend of mine, whom I met at Stanford decades ago, is a chaired professor of history at an Ivy League school - he is a staunch Conservative (a rare breed), consequently the identity of his school and the chair he holds will remain with me. My friend is finally retiring next year.
We spoke by phone late last night - about many issues, current and historical. Of course, Hillary Clinton’s email server came up, as did her rigged convention - rigged with the help of the DNCs Debbie Wasserman-Schultz - who upon resigning as DNC Chair, landed another job, working this time in the open on Clinton’s campaign staff.
It was at this point in the discussion with my friend that he uttered what I found to be a most profound summation of where we would be as a country should Hillary Clinton actually be elected President of the United States.
He said, should Hillary be elected we will accurately be judged to have been transformed into a second rate country, defended at home and abroad by first rate people; a country saddled with a third rate voter base who decided it was OK for their homeland to be run by unindicted criminals.
Thought I would share this.
