Why worship Jesus when you can worship Hillary Clinton?

The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reports:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign needs a resurrection in New Hampshire, but this is a strange way to go about it.

The Democrat invited the “alternative” women’s chorus Voices From the Heart to sing at a campaign event in Portsmouth, N.H. on Saturday. And the group did so, distorting the African-American spiritual “Woke Up This Morning (With My Mind On Jesus)”:

Woke up this mornin’ with my mind, stayin’ on Hillary
Woke up this mornin’ with my mind, stayin’ on Hillary
Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah!

Either Jesus was not amused or the devil gummed up the works. According to the latest NBC/Marist poll, Hillary is nine points behind rival Dem Bernie Sanders in the Granite State.

Nonetheless, she seems to believe that running her campaign like a church could be ticket to the White House. At an event for students at Case Western Reserve University in Pittsburgh, her workers asked the young people to sign a pledge to vote for her before they entered the football stadium hosting the rally. It was kind of like those “stewardship pledges” that your local house of worship has you sign in order to induce you to drop something into the collection basket every week.

But the devil seemed to have jinxed it again. Pittsburgh Tribune reporter Salena Zito noted that the sparse crowd of students in attendance seemed to be trending toward—not again!–Clinton nemesis Sanders, the pick of millennials this election season, and at least some of them attended the rally only because they hoped that Bill Clinton might show up.

Furthermore, the students weren’t exactly, um, reverent, Zito reported:

The event here wasn't just a failure to connect with millennials, but a fundamental inability to read her audience and adjust her speech — or perhaps laziness, or a sense of entitlement that she shouldn't have to work this hard for support….

A good politician would have noticed when he took the stage that the audience was filled with kids who likely did not grow up in Ohio (19 percent of Case Western Reserve University students are foreign-born) and were barely 12 years old when Clinton battled to win the state in 2008.

Instead, Clinton launched into a memorial for Ohio congressmen who were significant long before these kids were politically aware, then thanked the kids for their votes in 2008. (Again, they would have been 12 back then.)

“You lifted me up when I was down and out,” she said, referring to Ohio voters who got her flailing 2008 campaign back on its feet temporarily.

There wasn't the sound of crickets chirping, but no one picked up what she put down.

Clinton spoke for 30 minutes on voter suppression, gun control, women's reproductive rights; she called Republicans “terrorists” and championed foster care. The only time she caught the audience's attention was with a brief mention of college affordability.

Hmm, I think that Hillary needs to ask herself: What Would Jesus Do to Work a Crowd?
