While the Republican presidential candidates are running like Usain Bolt from dealing with race, Hillary Clinton is the only candidate with the guts to confront it head-on.
Washington Post: “The massacre last week at a church in Charleston, S.C., opened a leadership opportunity for the nearly two dozen politicians running to be the next president. But few stepped forward to seize it. The Republican hopefuls mostly stammered and stumbled in response to the shootings. At first, some resisted calling the massacre racially motivated, only to reverse course when it became obvious it was.”
“Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton, by contrast, has forcefully initiated a conversation about race and bigotry in recent days. At this moment of national trauma, the Republican candidates seemed as though they didn’t know what to say.”
This is all working in Mrs. Clinton’s favor and shows who is really serious about uniting ALL Americans. A recent WSJ/NBC poll finds Clinton “leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush,48% to 40%, in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup. Her lead grows to 10 points in a face-off with Florida Sen.Marco Rubio and 14 points against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.”
