Last evening, another Democratic presidential candidate got yet another historic, even unprecedented endorsement.
For the first time in Foreign Policy’s nearly 50-year history, it has endorsed a candidate for president: Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“In the nearly half century history of Foreign Policy, the editors of this publication have never endorsed a candidate for political office,” the editors wrote in its endorsement. “We cherish and fiercely protect this publication’s independence and its reputation for objectivity, and we deeply value our relationship with all of our readers, regardless of political orientation. It is for all these reasons that FP’s editors are now breaking with tradition to endorse Hillary Clinton for the next president of the United States.”
The editors of Foreign Policy called Clinton “one of the best qualified candidates this country has produced since World War II” who is “unquestionably well-prepared to lead this country.”
“Were she to be elected as this country’s first woman president, not only would it be historic and send an important signal about both inclusiveness and Americans’ commitment to electing candidates who have distinguished themselves on their merits, but she would enter office having already put down one great threat to the United States of America — the grotesque and deeply disturbing prospect of a Donald Trump presidency,” the editors wrote. Meanwhile, in sharp contrast, is the Trump campaign, historic in its own, very opposite way.
Mr. Trump is going to take an electoral drubbing, folks.
