‘Time’: Billy Graham Thinks Hillary Is Hot and Holy

20070810graham.jpg

Billy Graham thinks Hillary Clinton is “spiritual” and “warm,” according to a new book by two Time reporters excerpted in the new issue. Warm? We know Graham is famous for his faith — but that’s a leap we’re not sure we’re ready to make. In “The Preacher and the Presidents,” Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy quote Graham as saying, "I think a lot of Hillary … She is different from the Hillary you see in the media.” Clinton, in turn, says that she came to Graham when she was struggling with forgiving her husband after the Monica Lewinksy affair. The support of a man who's counseled every president since Truman is an interesting development for our hometown senator, who needs some religious-voter cred. But we couldn’t help notice (well, at least after FishbowlNY pointed it out to us), that Time managed to put horns on the good reverend’s head. Silly magazine, he isn’t Jewish!
