Frank Bruni, "Marco Rubio Doesn’t Add Up": What About Hillary's Profit From Cattle Futures?

In his latest New York Times op-ed entitled "Marco Rubio Doesn’t Add Up," Frank Bruni observes with regard to Rubio's quest for the Republican presidential nomination:

"Reasonable people can’t stomach the thought of Trump or Cruz as the nominee. We can’t accept what that would say about America, or what that could mean for it. Rubio is the flawed, rickety lifeboat we cling to, the amulet we clutch. He’ll prevail because he must. The alternative is simply too perverse (Trump) or too cruel (Cruz)."

Good point, Frank.

But what of the "alternative" that Hillary represents? A liar (e.g., telling the parents of the Benghazi victims that the attack on the diplomatic compound stemmed from a videotape, not to mention her claim that she came under sniper fire when landing in Bosnia in 1996)? A hypocrite (e.g., someone willing to accept millions of dollars of donations to her foundation from Saudi Arabia, a nation which whips and imprisons women who have been gang raped, while contending that women's rights are at the center of her agenda)?

And let's not forget how she turned a $1,000 investment in cattle futures into almost $100,000 after 10 months. Beginner's luck? I don't think so.

What does this say about America?
