The Indianapolis Star para Hillary

A sólo cuatro días de la primaria de Indiana, la Senadora Hillary Clinton se ha hecho con la bendición del The Indianapolis Star, el periódico de mayor tirada del estado, con unos 255,000 ejemplares diarios.

El periódico cita en su editorial los tópicos de siempre en estos casos: la mayor experiencia de Clinton. Pero reprende a ambos candidatos demócratas por sus posturas populistas sobre acuerdos de libre comercio.

(...) Obama offers an attractive vision for the way things could be. He speaks eloquently of hope and change. He connects with voters, many who formerly felt disenfranchised, on a level few political leaders have attained.

Clinton offers a clear-eyed view of the way things are. She offers nuanced positions on how to address the war in Iraq, trade with China and economic expansion. Her depth of knowledge is remarkable.

As impressive as Obama appears, he is still in his first term in the U.S. Senate, and only four years ago was serving as an Illinois state senator. His inexperience in high office is a liability.

Clinton, in contrast, is well prepared for the rigors of the White House. She is tough, experienced and realistic about what can and cannot be accomplished on the world stage.

(...) On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is the better choice, based on her experience and grasp of major issues, to confront those challenges. She earns The Star's endorsement in Tuesday's primary. (...)
