Hillary Clinton is My Man for President
With the convention of the Democratic Party in Philadelphia approaching, I want to be upfront about who is my man as the worthy successor to President Barack H. Obama who is leaving the Presidency with a high popularity rating. She is Hillary Clinton. And I hope Bernie Sanders, a septuagenarian like me, will come to his senses and does the same. Mr. Sanders, face it. The game is over and learn to accept graciously the reality that Hillary is unbeatable. It is time to rally behind her to show unity.
Hillary will be good for Asia. We in Asia want peace and stability through constructive engagement and diplomacy, not via the exercise of American military power of the George.W. Bush era. We have seen what happened to Iraq, Libya, Syria and Afghanistan and have not forgotten Vietnam and Cambodia. As a former Secretary of State, Hillary understands Asia and knows diplomacy works. That is why Obama endorses her.That is also why I support her, although I am not an American voter.–Din Merican
