“I don’t pretend to understand the wisdom and power of God. I do believe in prayer. I am very dependent on my faith, and prayer is a big part of that.” Mike Huckabee? No, Hillary Clinton.
“I believe in the power of prayer. Part of what I pray for is the strength and wisdom to act on the things I can control.” Mitt Romney? No, Barak Obama.
“My sense of social justice comes from being a Roman Catholic. Prayer is personal. It is important that we have faith, that we have values, but if I’m president I am not going to wear my religion on my sleeve.” Rudy Giuliani? No, Bill Richardson.
And from John Edwards: “I pray daily. I prayed [when] my 16 year old son died, prayed before Elizabeth was diagnosed with cancer. There are some things beyond our control … I don’t think you can prevent bad things happening through prayer.”
In case you thought Democrats didn’t learn a lesson from 2004 or didn’t think they could successfully make inroads with religious voters, the above quotes from today’s debate should give you a sense that Democrats are not conceding the value voters to the GOP.
