"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

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.

Churchill's mother was an American.

American democrats are starting to make noises about moving to Canada if Trump or Cruz are elected.
Last time around, it was the republicans saying they would come here if Mr Obama was elected.
One wonders how many actually do take to the road after an election.

Carson has been cleaning up on book sales - he even took a week off at one point to got on a selling tour. The
contributions to his charities also pour in. I hope he has good book-keepers because getting those income streams mixed
could cause him some angst with the authorities, For him the presidential run seems secondary. That is fair enough - his
inclusion as a republican was pretty cynical - as their token black.
