Hillary Clinton is, in most part due to the DNC's superdelegate system, is the clear front-runner of the 2016 Democratic Primary election. She is the wife of Bill Clinton, a former President of the United States, and she has served as both a Senator of New York, and as Secretary of State to the current President, Barrack Obama. She has twelve years of political experience (twenty, if one includes her time as First Lady).
Many have been told by corporate media that Hillary Clinton is the Democratic candidate with the most political experience under her belt, but whether one includes her time as First Lady or not, she is outmatched by Bernie Sanders, who among his time as a mayor, a Representative, and a Senator, has a total of thirty-two years of experience in the political sector.
One must also consider the fact that Clinton's political opinions, ranging from homosexual marriage to free trade to college tuition, has changed not just over the years, but for many issues, have changed dramatically over the past few months since Bernie Sanders joined the race and disrupted her clear shot to the Democratic nomination.
Though the corporate media will not tell you this, Hillary has been caught in numerous lies and scandals, even since the 2016 primaries began. For example, at several events, she told a story about a trip to Bosnia, in which she was rushed from her plane to an armored vehicle under sniper fire. However, as the event she was erroneously describing was caught on video, her story was quickly shown to be very different from the true sequence of events that took place. There was no risk of sniper fire, and she was not at all rushed to a vehicle. Indeed, she stayed for several minutes to speak to a class of middle school-aged students that came to see her on the tarmac. Her campaign attempted to explain this away by saying she was tired and that she might exaggerate a few details, but the story she told wasn't wrong on just a few details, and she told the exact same story at more than one event, days apart.
This fairy tale she told wasn't a mistake. It was a blatant lie that she told in an attempt to garner respect, sympathy, and, undoubtedly, votes. She is willing to say anything to get what she wants, but what else should one expect from an establishment politician?

Hilary Clinton, is in no way the best candidate for president, you will see who I like through my user name. But she is better than anyone in the running besides Sanders and possibly Stein (green party), even though she has no chance (green party). I will only be arguing her against Trump and Cruz and Kasich cannot win, I will also of course talk about why she is a good option.
Hilary Clinton supports raising taxes on the rich, which is necessary in order to make them pay there fair share. She is of course not raising taxes so much that they lose all of there income, she would only raise taxes 4% on people that make more than 250,000 dollars. She easily has enough experience in Congress and in politics to pass this through a democratic congress, if there is a republican congress, she would still have the power to use executive orders and would still have other executive powers to pass what she wants. She would also if necessary break up wall street, which has blocked entrepreneurs from entering many markets for example the tech industry. Small businesses, today eventually hit a cap of success or big businesses on wall street take interest and either knock them out of business or buy them, seizing control (most of the time) from the owner, the entrepreneur. Breaking up wall street would make it so that new businesses could enter the market, it would also make sure that the people of the United States of America, never have to bail out wall street again in order to save there economy and there jobs.
Hilary Clinton would continue to help the US further its fight against HUMAN made climate change, and would continue to change the US to renewable energies, which is good whether you believe in the fact of climate change our not, if it isn't real than we don't have to worry about the inevitable, running out on natural gases and oil. If it is real, then we don't have to worry about running out on natural gases and oil, and we just saved the planet for future generations.
Hilary Clinton also is in favor of abortion, and giving people a choice over their bodies, for the first 5 months of pregnancy no matter what, and believes in abortion in the 3rd quarter in cases of rape, incest, and risk of the mothers life.
Clinton has a lot of experience on foreign policy, due to her time as secretary of state, and putting her Benghazi, an obvious bluster aside she was a great secretary of state. Her private email scandal, should not have been a scandal as the past 3 secretary states before her were found to also use private emails instead of US encrypted ones, she is just the only one that can be prosecuted due to the cases for the other ones being to old.
Clinton is in support of LGBTQ peoples and would pass any anti discrimination laws that come her way (as president or senator, or representative).
Unlike Cruz, she happened to be born in the US (I know Cruz can run, but she is a true US born) and unlike Trump she has actual government experience!

Since you didn't answer, in order to be nice I'll just make a brief statement.

Hilary, is legally aloud to be president therefore she is an option. She is not Islam phobic, racist, sexist, anti Semitic, or anything like that, she is a fine option, weather you like her policies or not does not make her a good option, it makes her your candidate or you enemy (it makes it so you like her or you don't), but she is an option, and a good one, better than Trump and Cruz atlas!

DiegoJuan403 As I already said, this is about Hillary Clinton. This debate does not involve any other candidate.

This is a debate on whether Clinton is a viable candidate for presidency. This has nothing to do with whether or not Bernie is a better candidate. Any references to Senator Sanders are made only to point out facts, not my opinions.

Is this about if Bernie is better than her or whether Clinton is good or bad? I agree that Bernie is WAY better but if Clinton won the primary I would fully support her.
