Hillary Hits Obama: I Would Have Quit Church

Hillary Clinton said she would have left her church if her pastor had uttered the kind of inflammatory remarks made by Barack Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright at his Chicago church.

“He would not have been my pastor,” Clinton said Tuesday in an interview with reporters and editors at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

“You don’t choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend.”

Clinton likened Rev. Wright’s controversial sermons to “hate speech.”

She told the Tribune-Review that she “spoke out against” Don Imus, who was fired from his radio and TV shows after making racially insensitive comments, “saying that hate speech was unacceptable in any setting, and I believe that.

“I just think you have to speak out against that. You certainly have to do that, if not explicitly, then implicitly by getting up and moving.”

Hillary also discussed her recent erroneous recollection that she and her traveling party came under sniper fire when their plane landed in Bosnia in 1996, saying “I was sleep-deprived, and I misspoke.”

And on the topic of earmarks, Clinton told the Tribune-Review: “I am proud of my earmarks. Part of the reason that I won New York by 67 percent are my earmarks.”
