Stop picking on poor Hillary

In response to an FT article by Megan Murphy on 10th July 2015, entitled 'Clinton's stumbles fray Democratic nerves'

All this criticism of Mrs Clinton is totally unfair. She is by far the most talented and qualified candidate. She has degrees in narcissism and sociopathy and she speaks five different accents. She has dedicated her life to the pursuit of power and spending other people's money, and has assiduously avoided the temptation to get a real job. She has a deep understanding of how to fool people into thinking she cares about them, and most important of all - she will never forget the people who put her where she is today - Wall Street and government contractors.

She has all the qualifications needed to succeed in Washington.
