What I really liked about Bill Clinton's speech in support of Hillary is that he underscored how the minutia of tasks associated with politics is very often not as glamorous as one might expect—that is, if it's done well. By talking about Hillary's very hard, lifelong work of researching issues over the decades in order to develop a sound knowledge base for decision making, in concert with building constituencies and political avenues around them, is not for the faint of heart. It is for those that have stamina, persevere, and who sacrifice their lives, families, and time so that the world can be a more just place.
This is not at all to say that Hillary or any other public servant is perfect, but rather to state that even if Hillary benefits from the fact that her husband was a past president, she has nevertheless invested her entire life and career in politics.
It's still not easy for her. It's not going to be easy for her. But she's hard working, committed, and abundantly competent for the position of President of the USA.
