Thanks, Jay Maynard. If I had thought she would follow my advice, I would have sent her a memo. Like most people, HRC often has trouble distinguishing between the national interest and her own. There is ego but also undoubted idealism in her desire for power. Her career discloses at least occasional glimpses of civic virtue, plus a consistent, reassuring respect for our constitutional system. Trump, on the other hand, displays no visible virtues, and neither understands nor appreciates our political heritage.
