Editorial endorsement: Hillary Clinton for President in 2016

The campaign for the presidency of the United States has been a mean and dispiriting one. The two major-party candidates who emerged from bruising primary contests, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, are the two most unpopular people to ever seek the office.

While Clinton has a long record of public service, including eight years as New York's junior senator, she has struggled to articulate a hopeful vision for the country that goes beyond a third Obama term. 

Trump, meanwhile, has shown he is capable of bluster and insult, but he possesses neither the temperament nor the depth of understanding required to serve as leader of the free world.
