I'm having a hard time understanding your admiration for her

I am completely in awe of the challenge of competing in the process of election to the Office of President of the United States. It is beyond my comprehension.
Obviously I am not American and do not have a vote. Nothing I say hangs in the balance.
Still, the United Nations has survived sixty-five years and we all have an interest in the President of the United States of America.
Despite being a tiny backwater, we share some common elements. Experience may give me a another perspective. Not superior. Just hard-knock different. Empathy perhaps.
We know only what we read or hear on electronic media without means of verifying authenticity.
Nothing I've read or heard leads me to disbelieve in Hillary Clinton's integrity or commitment to public service.
Indications are wealth came through speaking engagements and successful book sales.
Both honest and publicly-shared endeavors.
We read of investments made at one time. Nothing there of questionable morality.
On the other hand, jealousy and malevolence are prominent in the political condition and never hard to identify. Even Democrats are not immune.
Only two candidates in the current Republican line-up indicate national well-being, Republican-style, come before exploitation, greed and ambition .
At the moment, neither looks like a winner though I'm reminded of a Churchill quote;
"Americans always do the right thing. ....after they've tried everything else"
Governors Jeb Bush and John Stasick and Christie are obviously hoping that's true.
