Why Did Vermont’s Three Democratic Governors Endorse Clinton?

Kunin, Dean and Shumlin have refrained from attacking Sanders. But each has made it clear they believe Clinton would be a more effective president. Dean: “All this has made Hillary more than the best person for the toughest job in the world. I want her as my president, and I trust her to do the kind of job that is necessary in a very tough world.” Kunin: “He’s making a lot of promises. The question will be, is he really qualified? I’m glad he’s running, I think he’ll liven up the debates, certainly, and I think he’ll really underline and emphasize these central issues, which is good for the country.” Shumlin: “She quietly pulls people together and gets things done. Even though that’s not in vogue right now, I think that’s what voters will want in the end.”

Kunin, Dean and Shumlin know what it takes to be a chief executive. And they have chosen Hillary Clinton.

1. They know Hillary's Strengths and they know BS after all this time.. they obviously

know who will make the better POTUS.

It's not even close.

Madeleine Kunin is a trail blazer. Elected governor in 1985, Kunin is the first and only female governor of Vermont. kunin She was the first Jewish governor of Vermont. She was the first woman in U.S. history to be elected governor three times. Kunin upended the hold that male WASPs long had over Vermont politics. As governor, she created Vermont’s successful Dr. Dynasaur health care program for children.

Nice.. they've done a profile on the 3 Vermont Gov in the New Hampshire paper.

Thank you, DejaVu~

6. Shumlin gave the best statement imo

“She quietly pulls people together and gets things done." That is what I will be voting for.

9. You didn't get the memo? The Bernie Bots already threw Dean under the bus

He's now working as a pharma lobbyist.

11. This is very telling! (Bernie's fans aren't going to like this one little bit! Good!)

I wonder how many alerts this thread (or the replies) will have?

12. BY THE WAY... I've often wondered ...

... can multiple people continue to alert on the same post until a "random jury" finally hides it? Or, is a post "safe" after it survives the first alert?

13. A post only goes to a jury once

After that, if it's not hidden, subsequent alerters get a message that the post has already been to a jury and what the results were. Hope that helps.

14. No.. only goes to jury once.. but even if a post has survived a jury it can still be alerted on and

the alerts go to the Admins and they see what's going on.

Which is what I've done a few times.

16. Thanks!

Even without the risk of "double-jeopardy", it's really a shame that there's a 6:1 mathematical weakness in the jury system that works against Hillary supporters. (I'm sure that Hillary supporters aren't the only ones who realized this, even BEFORE Skinner confirmed it.)

17. As chief executives themselves,

they know who is fit for command and who isn't.
