Robert Barber, did Hillary do the right thing or the politically expedient thing?

I don’t know why Hillary did what she did. She had her reasons.

My point is that it doesn’t look like a bad decision now, twenty years after the fact. Her family stayed together. Chelsea has two parents. At the time, I was surprised Hillary didn’t get rid of him. I was younger then.

But even if a divorce is the best thing for Huma Abedin, and it may well be, is that something we should root for? With a child involved?

This story fits the good woman, bad man narrative that people are so quick to raise their hand and chime in on. They forget that a child is involved.

Treat it as a painful but necessary step in the journey of this family, not something to break out in happy-dance mode over on Twitter.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
