It has become George Soros‘ nature to partake political discourse for furthering his interests and those of the Open Society Foundations. The political arena in the US and other parts of the world are accustomed to Soros’ comments and support for candidates.
One then wonders what vested interests does he have? Indeed, Soros and the OSF share the idea of an open and free society. A place where people strive to bring perfection to the imperfect systems of governance and living. A free society is just and accommodative.
That said, George Soros supports the candidates deemed to further the spread of democratic ideals. Over the decades, he has pledged verbal and financial support to plenty of candidates considered to embrace democratic means. However, one candidate he has always shown faith in is Hillary Clinton. Currently, Clinton’s presidential hopes seem to grow by the day, and her campaigns ignite with positive energy and passion.
On the same point, Politico magazine covered a recent donation made by Soros to the Clinton camp. See the article here, http://www.politico.com/story/2016/01/hillary-clinton-george-soros-218494. A $6 million donation last December compounded about $2 million more made within the past year. Hillary Clinton has been receiving support from far and wide including Hollywood. Mr. Soros turns out to be the most generous giver to the course. Due to his philanthropy and that of other well-wishers, Hillary’s campaign recorded a healthy financial position at the close of 2015.
George Soros knows how to spot a winning team. He has backed Clinton since 2012. The presidential hopeful is believed to have an open door policy from which she can discuss pressing matters on issues of concern. George Soros believes such character makes Clinton the right person to serve the interests of Open Societies in the US. Such belief perhaps explains his willingness to donate such a huge amount.
