He could have just said, "Nice to have you here." and leave it at that. Leave the butt-kissing to the media.

Graham's technique has always been to sidestep politics and current polarizing issues. I knew Graham had invited the Clintons to this Crusade, but I didn't know it would be to this extent.
I think Graham was being a gentleman, but I think he should have left the politics out of it, as he has during the preceding years.

Look the man is in his 80's, suffering three illnesses and trying once again to spread the gospel in New York.
And, you complain because he was kind instead of hateful, vengeful, rude.
The fact the Clinton's took advantage of the opportunity - does not mean Billy Graham is at fault.
Give the man a break.
