Why a minister supports Hillary Clinton

Why a minister supports Hillary Clinton
By Rev. Chuck Currie

Picking a president should not come easily. A president does not just make budget proposals, wrestle with decisions regarding war and peace, or pick nominees for the Supreme Court. Presidents also set a moral tone for the nation. That is why I decided to support Hillary Clinton.

Her concession after falling short in New Hampshire reminded me of just why I made that decision. Secretary Clinton said that night: “You know, my family and my faith taught me a simple thing, do all the good in all the ways you can for all the people you can.”

Clinton is the only candidate with the depth of experience America needs in this moment. I will not agree with her on every issue – just as there have been times I have publicly disagreed with President Obama – but her overall vision of our nation connects with mine. As a minister, a father, and professor, I feel confident in the future with Hillary Clinton as president.
