Regarding Jeremiah Wright, Hillary Clinton has said, “He would not have been my pastor. You don’t choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend.”
You also choose the church from which you might recruit legislative assistants. In February 2006, those who sat under the Rev. Wright’s theological tutelage and bombastic and incendiary sermons were considered promising prospects to assist the New York senator on legislative matters concerning the common good.
