Hillary Clinton to talk faith instead of politics


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is showcasing her Methodist roots in a speech to about 7,000 members of the United Methodist Church.

The former U.S. senator from New York and the wife of former President Bill Clinton has been brandishing her foreign policy experience, with a recent speech at the University of Connecticut and an upcoming new book, "Hard Choices."

The United Methodist Women Assembly in Louisville this weekend offers Clinton a chance to talk about her faith in a personal way to women from across the country as she prepares for a possible run for president in 2016.

She is scheduled to give the gathering's keynote address Saturday morning.

United Methodist Women is the denomination's 800,000-member women's mission group.
