Hillary Clinton is at her best with a small group in a town hall where she can allow her inner warmth to shine. She spent less time talking about her “experience” and a lot of time just talking about her inner self and how she cares about the American people. There were no grandiose ideas put forth, just a lot of common sense. She made clear that at this moment in time the issue is building on what is rather than creating what we would love to be. She came across as a realist, a progressive, or if you prefer, a liberal.
Her best moment was when asked to promise not to send Americans into harm’s way. Her response was that she could not make such a promise. That was the type of honesty that is missing from Bernie Sanders when he discusses foreign policy and certainly from the Trump crowd. If the US was bombed by North Korea it would mean thousands of Americans once again fighting in Korea. Such is reality.
