Cincinnati Enquirer is latest conservative newspaper to endorse Clinton

And they did so with eye wide open. Interestingly, while they did pit Clinton's strengths against her problems (e.g., the trust thing), they could only enumerate the glaring flaws of Trump. A Trump presidency scares the bejesus out of them. For example:

Trump is a clear and present danger to our country. He has no history of governance that should engender any confidence from voters. Trump has no foreign policy experience, and the fact that he doesn't recognize it – instead insisting that, "I know more about ISIS than the generals do" – is even more troubling. His wild threats to blow Iranian ships out of the water if they make rude gestures at U.S. ships is just the type of reckless, cowboy diplomacy Americans should fear from a Trump presidency. Clinton has been criticized as being hawkish but has shown a measured approach to the world's problems. Do we really want someone in charge of our military and nuclear codes who has an impulse control problem? The fact that so many top military and national security officials are not supporting Trump speaks volumes.
