Jonathan Strum's commentary on Hillary Clinton's presidential prospects resonated deeply with me ("Dynasty or democracy?" Aug. 18).
We have had quite enough of the Bush and Clinton families already. For the sake of a healthy republic it would be best, as he points out so well, if name recognition and money did not determine governance.
I think that there is enough dysfunction in our political system already. We don't need to add to it the dysfunction of these political families.
