It’s all in which sources you believe and just how much cynicism is whispering in your ear.
It isn’t enough to just reject or fight cynicism. Cynicism has to be held underwater until it’s little feet stop kicking, and then buried out in the garden with the rest of the dead pets. You might even want to have the corpse of cynicism blessed by a priest or perhaps burned and scattered. I’m not sure. Not sure just what to trust these days or if anyone or anything deserves trust. But I do know one thing. Cynicism is the enemy in your own mind. It warps your thoughts, plagues your hopes and pisses on your successes.
So you can look at Hillary and just see the negative, the negative created by those who hate her and have hated her since the 90’s. Or you could try looking at her through a different lens. Your choice. But personally I’ve spent enough time hating authority for no good reason beyond it’s being authority. Picking my battles better in the future.
