The divide among your editorial board sounds like a mirror image of my own conflicted inner debate.
I'm quite surprised with myself as I keep coming to the same conclusion as did y'all. It seems like this is the first time I've ever consciously decided to choose pragmatism over my own idealism in an important election and, at times, it almost feels like an out of body experience.
Simply put, in this election, I believe we need the candidate with the best practical and tactical skill sets for managing the demands of the US Presidency and for serving as the national leader of the Democratic Party. No matter how often I question my decision I cannot avoid coming to the conclusion that our strongest candidate for fulfilling those responsibilities is HRC.
So, with due respect to John Lennon, Bernie, and my progressive friends and allies supporting him, and to those endorsing/supporting Hillary I want to say, "To my surprise and with some regrets, I am convinced that in this defining point in history we will be better served by a doer rather than a dreamer. That is why I'm supporting HRC and I'm relieved I'm not the only one."
