August 18, 2016

Every president has the right, and obligation, to place in nomination for their cabinet his or her own choices of who will reflect their policy priorities. Equally, the senate has the right and obligation to vet and vote on those nominations. The president should be given deference in his choices and, equally, the senate confirmation process needs to be thorough and respected.

A lasting legacy

Blog Entry #1
By Christine Todd Whitman
August 18, 2016

The Republican Party can arguably be said to have done the greatest service to the nation when it nominated Abraham Lincoln. Now, however, it might be accused of having done the greatest disservice in having nominated Donald Trump. Far from trying to keep the nation together, Trump is doing everything he can to undermine the legitimacy of our electoral system and, in the process, giving license to fringe organizations to take matters into their own hands. Our founding fathers said that if democracy fails, it will be from within, and I fear we risk seeing that unfold in our day. Whatever happens on election day, we face the high likelihood of a nation divided. True conservatives value the Constitution and our electoral process – how we handle that division will determine our lasting legacy.
