[The 90’s Election Specials raw: Clintons at Church of God in Christ, St. Patrick’s Day parade]

Raw tape for The 90's election specials. Bill and Hillary Clinton go to the St. Paul Church of God in Christ at 45th and Wabash (across from the Robert Taylor Homes) on the South Side of Chicago. Bishop Louis H. Ford (1914-1995), a personal friend of the Clinton family and the man for whom the Bishop Ford freeway is named, preaches. Much gospel music.

She gives a captivating speech about how racism has been dividing the country and deepening social iniquities. “We need to make two great commitments: the first commitment, that we will be divided no more, that we will reach across those divides and once again create one nation under God to do his bidding and solve our problems. And that we will then, with that new resolve, go out into our communities and do what we can do.”

All in all, people were very impressed by the visit and overall seem to support Bill because of Hillary. No one seems upset about the allegations that Gov. Clinton had an affair – “Well, we all have our faults. I have my faults, he has his faults.”
