Was Hillary Too Good for America?

Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton may have lost because
she was too good for America.
Hillary Clinton was best qualified candidate for president of the United States ever. Did she lose because she was “Miss Goody Two Shoes?” 
The phrase “Miss Goody Two Shoes” comes from a children’s story published in London in 1765, The History of Miss Goody Two Shoes. . A poor girl—so poor she only has one shoe—is a very good and kindhearted person. Her her goodness is eventually rewarded with a  second shoe and a rich husband.

Hillary’s mistake was overestimating the goodness of the American electorate. I too felt that the American people were good people, and they would never vote for a narcissistic greedy bully like Donald Trump. Both she and I were wrong. 

Hillary is honest, ethical, and hardworking. Almost all of the negative stuff you heard about it was bogus. Minor things were blown way out of proportion in order to create "scandals." She ran an ethical campaign--no mud-slinging and no promising what she could not deliver.

Being a good person herself, Hillary trusted in the goodness of the American people. It was inconceivable to her that Americans would vote for a vulgar, lying, thieving, conman and bully to hold the highest office in the land. 

Hillary was punished for her goodness. 

Miss Goody Two Shoes is only rewarded in fairy tales.

I have written about this in detail in another longer essay.  Please see: Was Hillary Too Good for America?  

You can read Hillary Clinton's new book, What Happened, for more about Hillary Clinton and her campaign for president.

If you want to know more about Republican dirty tricks that cost Hillary Clinton the presidency read this new book by Joshua Green, Devil's Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the PresidencyHe is a reporter who was there from the start. He gives us his compelling inside story of the partnership between Steve Bannon and Donald Trump. It is the key to understanding the rise of the alt-right and the hidden forces behind the greatest upset in American political history.
