"Biblical" thoughts from the Democrats
...Politics of personal destruction? Who, moi?
... Russert asked the candidates to name their favorite Bible verse. Sen. Barack Obama said the Sermon on the Mount, which was a little broad, but allowed him to riff on the federal deficit and an “empathy deficit.” Rep. Dennis Kucinich cited the prayer of St. Francis, which isn’t in the Bible. That was a little odd, because at other gatherings Kucinich has often cited “repairers of the breach,” which is from Isaiah and would have been a perfectly fine answer.
The best Bible moment came when Sen. Clinton cited the Golden Rule. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” she said. “I think it’s a good rule for politics, too.” It was a warm touch from the woman who has been videotaped saying, “When you are attacked you have to deck your opponent.”
