Hillary's Prayer: Hillary Clinton's Religion and Politics

I have heard some of these ideas about Hillary before. Very interesting from a Christian point of view:

It was an elegant example of the Clinton style, a rhetorical maneuver subtle, bold, and banal all at once. During a Democratic candidate forum in June, hosted by the liberal evangelical group Sojourners, Hillary Clinton fielded a softball query about Bill's infidelity: How had her faith gotten her through the Lewinsky scandal?

After a glancing shot at Republican "pharisees," Clinton explained that, of course, her "very serious" grounding in faith had helped her weather the affair. But she had also relied on the "extended faith family" that came to her aid, "people whom I knew who were literally praying for me in prayer chains, who were prayer warriors for me." Read More.

There is something about Sen. Clinton that makes me distrustful. While Pres. Clinton seemed primarily motivated by a need to be "liked". Sen. Clinton seems to be motivated by a thirst to be in control. IMHO, this makes her less desirable as a President, than Pres. Clinton.

Specifically, to her faith. Too much of it seems to be concealed beneath a bushel basket. So much so that it's hard to make a judgement re: her sincerity and commitment.

Besides, she is not a fiscal conservative. She is too eager to collect and redistribute other people's money. Much of it without any hope of a "return".

I don't want her as president and am also distrustful of her. On the other hand she is not the demon that many make her out to be.
