Is Hillary Clinton a crook or not? How about Donald Trump?

Webster's New World Dictionary (Collegiate Edition) defines crook as "a swindler; thief."

Who is the swindler or thief here?

I have had the chance to visit or live in 29 countries and 48 states in my lifetime. I have been to danger spots like Korea, where I taught school in 1970, and East Germany, where I visited in 1969.

One thing I learned is you can't smart off to people in the world's "hot spots." Clinton knows this from being Secretary of State. Trump does not know this.

With nuclear weapons everywhere, especially in a place like North Korea, we cannot just say and do whatever we please.

If Trump starts a war because of stupidity, he will prove to be a swindler and a thief to the whole world.

He will also prove to be a swindler or thief to our children, for whom he has set a terrible example in regard to personal morality.

Yes, Bill Clinton may have set a bad example as well, but he is not running this time.

It is his wife, Hillary, who is running, and I have never heard her use the language that Trump has used around many people.

No, Hillary is not a perfect person, but she may be the best example on how we should conduct ourselves (and yes, the young people watching.)
