Hillary has proven she can handle anyone

To the editor:

I believe that politics requires the ability to compromise and to deal respectfully with all comers. While watching Hillary Clinton face down the 11-hour Benghazi inquisition calmly and factually, she demonstrated her ability to deal with all comers.

I am voting for Hillary, not because she is a woman, but because she is the person best equipped to do the job. She has the experience, the demeanor and the record to succeed as president of the United States.
