Why GOP Army Colonel Mansoor Will Vote For Hillary Clinton

Army Colonel Peter Mansoor, a senior aide to General David Patreus during the Iraq war and who now teaches military history at Ohio State University, explained on CNN's Anderson Cooper Show on Wednesday night that he will vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.  It won't be because of his love of Hillary Clinton and certainly not because he admired her disastrous tenure as Secretary of State, but it will be, in his own words, "the only way to stop Donald Trump from being the commander-in-chief", who he considers would be dangerous for United States foreign policy and national security. 

Col Peter Mansoor: "Donald Trump is unfit to be president"
While I agree with this life long registered Republican about Donald Trump and therefore will also not be voting for Trump for president, I cannot follow his lead to vote for Hillary as I believe Hillary Clinton is also unfit to be president. 

Here is Army Colonel Peter Mansoor being interviewed by Anderson Cooper on CNN on June 1, 2016, explaining why he must vote for Hillary Clinton for president:



While I am #NeverTrump and #Never Hillary, I still appreciate this military expert's opinion and I also respect Col Mansoor for taking what will probably be an unpopular and much criticized stand in Republican circles.
