What Would Hillary Have Done?

A letter writer from Seattle answers the question: What Would Hillary Have Done?

Rebecca Traister writes that Hillary Clinton’s presidency would probably not have looked so different from Obama’s. Really? Would Hillary have spent all her political capital passing a watered-down health care act? Would she have bailed out the banks and corporations? Surged in Afghanistan? Extended the Bush tax cuts? Signed a deficit-reduction act that balances the budget on the backs of the poor and working people of this country? I think not. The difference between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama is that Clinton knows that the Republicans don’t play fair. People have a right to be bitterly disappointed, and it is only human nature to ask, “What if?”
