(Hillary) Clinton preaches, then runs (didn't stick around to hear pastor's sermon)

DES MOINES, Iowa - Hillary Rodham Clinton delivered a campaign sermon Sunday, but didn't stick around to hear the pastor do his preaching.

"We're still at church. We're still going to worship no matter what," the Rev. Lee Maxey said as the Democratic presidential candidate, her daughter, Chelsea, and their entourage left Corinthian Baptist Church, the media pack close behind.

Clinton stayed for about 20 minutes and, when she spoke, noted her support for children's rights.

The New York senator also highlighted a chapter in her book, "It Takes a Village," that talks about every child needing a champion. She said most children have someone in that role and she'd like to fulfill it for the whole country.

"I think the American people need a president who is their champion. And I've been running to be that champion — to get up every single day and do all that I can to make sure I provide the tools that every single American is entitled to receive and make the most out of their own lives," Clinton said.

And with that, she hurried out.

The Rev. James Green took a poke at the just-departed Clinton as he began his sermon.

"When I first got here I was a little overwhelmed. All the dignitaries came in," he said. "I thought they were going to stay for service, but they're still campaigning."

Earlier this year, Democratic candidate Barack Obama also joined the mostly black congregation.

He, too, left early.

There the Dems go, campaigning in churches and berating the Republicans for “using religion.”

You mean you're still going to worship WITHOUT Hillary?

Is this Rev. some kind of dope?

Maybe she was afraid someone was going to throw holy water on her.

Just because the golden calf leaves the building doesn't mean the worshippers stop bowing and praying.

make sure I provide the tools that every single American is entitled to receive and make the most out of their own lives," Clinton said.

That pretty much sums up Hillary. She can provide the "tools" we are "entitled" to receive. I don't like the sound of that!

What an insult = first off,let one republican campaign from a pulpit and it would be off with his head.

But to use someone's pulpit and congregation and then scoot is the height of arrogance and rudeness. Then again, one doesn't expect an 'oink' out of a cow

This is what happens when you allow your church to be used as a place for a stump speech. And, they’re surprised she’s not going to stay to worship.
