Vogue magazine has officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for the presidential election next month. For a long time, Vogue had stayed away from entering into the political scenario and didn’t endorse any political candidate. However, this election is seemingly different which made them change their long term practice.
The magazine put it simply in an official statement on its Website : Vogue endorses Hillary Clinton for president of the United States.
In an Editorial, the magazine said: “Vogue has no history of political endorsements.
“Given the profound stakes of this one and the history that stands to be made, we feel that should change.
Vogue, which has been led by editor-in-chief Anna Wintour since 1988, added Clinton “knows the challenges working women face”.
“We understand that Clinton has not always been a perfect candidate, yet her fierce intelligence and considerable experience are reflected in policies and positions that are clear, sound, and hopeful,” the editorial said.
And as per Washington post, “Trump is still without a single daily newspaper endorsement.”
Justifying their decision and telling that Clinton might not be the perfect and suitable candidate, Vogue goes on to explain its historic decision, praising the Democratic candidate’s comprehensive immigration reform, calls for racial justice and her support for LGBTQ rights makes her better than her contemporary partner.
Vogue has outlined Clinton six times since she appeared on the national stage. The magazine has also featured Donald Trump’s three wives — Ivana Trump, Marla Maples, and Melania Trump — along with Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka, several times.
But the magazine has clearly condemned “the chaos and unpredictability and the sometimes appalling spectacle of this election season that may define America’s existence after elections results.
The magazine also urged its readers to go out and vote on November 8 and utilize their power to choose the best candidate for America.
