Texas Newspaper Destroys The Myth That Hillary Clinton Is The Lesser Of Two Evils

by Jason Easley

"A Texas newspaper hasn’t just endorsed Hillary Clinton. The Corpus Christi Caller-Times destroyed the media created myth that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are equals, but that Clinton is the lesser of two evils. In their endorsement the editorial board of the Caller-Times wrote:

 She is not, as has been sold, a mere lesser of two evils. Her experience and intellect would make her a standout in any group of candidates. Like President Obama said and didn’t need to be fact-checked, she’s more qualified than him or her husband. …. Being the only serious alternative is both Clinton’s fortune and misfortune. It increases the likelihood of victory, but also of presiding over a nation with large groups of dissidents.

While voting against her can be a statement of differing principle, voting for Trump would not rise to that level. It’s not a vote for Republicanism. The Republican Party’s principles and standards are beyond Trump’s reach. …. We perceive in Clinton the capability to bridge the divide — to define rather than exploit our problems and pursue intelligent solutions. Her “basket of deplorables” comment made the task more difficult but it was a rare lapse by an otherwise level-headed servant leader with a history of self-correcting resilience.

The former senator’s Republican colleagues remember her fondly as a middle-ground-seeking master of the art of deal-making. If there is to be a return to bipartisanship, she is the one to lead it.

 It is rare to see an endorsement in this presidential election that focuses on why one candidate should be president instead of why her opponent is unfit to hold the office."

There are many degrees of almost everything. That includes good and evil. From pure good and pure evil to the least of each. Obviously they are inverse to one another. Therefore the statement that HRC is the lesser of two evils (or greater of two goods if one prefers) is true; given she is not purer good nor is she purer evil. However, in many folks eyes she has some degree of evil. But. it is certainly by far less than Trump possesses.

The degree of evil present in an individual is proportional to the degree of good lacking in that individual.

Hillary is therefore the lesser of two evils, or, the greater of two goods. Take your pick.
