Nomination of Clinton leaves letter writer incredulous

I am at a loss. I am completely unable to understand how anyone in the Democratic Party is able to not only support Hillary Clinton as their Presidential nominee, but explain how there is no one in the entire Democratic Party who is more qualified. Is there any Democrat out there who is able to clarify why she is the only one to represent the Democratic Party for president? Anyone? Certainly the Republicans were unable to provide any suitable candidate and that was verified by Republican voters who made it clear they were tired of the establishment. Hence the nomination of Donald Trump.

But, Democrats, really? Hillary Clinton? Why? Because she is a woman? Really? Are there no Democrat women who have more integrity or honesty than Hillary? An even better question: Is the personal integrity of Democrat voters so lacking that they would blindly go along with such an, arguably, poor choice? Have you no intestinal fortitude to question those who would presume to make your choices for you?

I am 68 years old and have survived many tumultuous events in the history of our country, including the year I served in Vietnam. The fact that a political party would promote a candidate that is dishonest, corrupt and completely lacking in personal integrity is beyond my understanding. Are there any Democrats out there who are able to provide an intelligent explanation why Hillary Clinton is the chosen one to represent them and their party for the office of President?
