It wasn’t exactly a Sister Souljah moment, but Hillary Clinton told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that Jeremiah Wright “would not have been my pastor.” “You don’t choose your family,” Clinton said, “but you choose what church you want to attend.”
Hillary also trotted out the “sleep-deprived” excuse for why she “misspoke” on Bosnia and called for a commission to look at reforming Social Security. Yawn. But the comments about Wright were the starkest I’ve heard her make concerning this controversy. The Clintons were criticized for their choice of pastor during the 1990s — Philip Wogaman of the very liberal Foundry United Methodist Church — but Wright makes Wogaman look like an evangelical megachurch pastor by comparison. Or at least Tony Campolo.
