hopeful Sen. Hillary Clinton speaks during a forum on faith, values,
and poverty hosted by Sojourners/Call to Renewal, an evangelical
social justice movement, at George Washington University, Monday,
June 4, 2007, in Washington.
In a public discussion of her husband's infidelity , Democratic presidential
candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that she probably could not
have gotten through her marital troubles without relying on her faith in
by her decisions to stay in the marriage in the aftermath
of former President Clinton's admission that he had an affair.
"I am very grateful that I had a grounding in faith that gave me the
courage and the strength to do what I thought was right, regardless of
what the world thought," Clinton said during a forum where the three
leading Democratic presidential candidates talked about faith and values.
"I'm not sure I would have gotten through it without my faith," she
said in response to a question about how she dealt with the infidelity.
The forum provided an uncommon glimpse into the most personal beliefs
of Clinton and rivals John Edwards and Barack Obama.
The most intimate question came about the Clintons' relationship, one
of the world's most debated marriages but one that the husband and wife
rarely speak openly about.
Clinton said it's those times when her personal faith and the prayers
of others sustain her.
"At those moments in time when you are tested, it is absolutely
essential that you be grounded in your faith," she said.
