Although the headline from AOL News reads "Clinton Honors Graham During Pastor's Last U.S. Crusade, in fact the Clintons were the ones winning the "honors", which is exactly what they went for. Where is the ACLU and People for Separation of Church and State? Oh, I forgot, separating religion from politics does not apply whenever democrats are the ones being praised, applauded and endorsed in places of worship. So there you have it folks, Billy's for Hillary Clinton for president. May he live so long!
"Graham called the Clintons 'wonderful friends' and 'a great couple,' quipping that the former president should become an evangelist and allow 'his wife to run the country.'"Was this exploitation of the aging Reverend Graham, just another cunning political move by the Clintons? Or, as a Christian, was America's Preacher just "hanging out" with the morally bankrupt, in hopes of spreading the gospel, as Jesus commanded? Or, is the great evangelist only being true to himself, as he recently revealed to NBC's Katie Couric that he is a life-long Democrat? Take your pick. One thing we know for certain, there was "Bill Clinton", forever and always, "the corpse at every funeral, the bride at every wedding, and the baby at every christening."
Thanks to the sharp tongued Alice Roosevelt Longworth, daughter of Theodore Roosevelt, for the prophetic quotation.
