Opinion, by Michael Royster
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – At a debate held in Rio last month, sponsored by the US Consulate and local think tank CEBRI, representatives of the Republican and Democratic parties spoke (always in civilized terms, hallelujah!) about their candidates. The most surprising comment was offered by the Republican spokesman, who claimed Hillary Clinton is more conservative than Donald Trump.
If the meaning of “conservative” is to conserve what now exists, he is probably right. A Hillary Clinton presidency can be expected to maintain almost all the policies common to the presidencies of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama . . .
