09/14/2003 Entry: "Our Bill in LA!"

"LOS ANGELES, Sept. 14 -- Former president Bill Clinton appeared at a black church and a Mexican restaurant today to rally voters against the removal of Gov. Gray Davis (D), arguing that the California recall is unjust, unfair, reckless -- and 'a power grab' by Republicans.

"Clinton's appearance marks the beginning of a salvo from national Democrats rallying behind Davis and against the Oct. 7 recall, which has begun to lose some steam in public polls. Up later this week are former vice president Al Gore, Jesse L. Jackson and two presidential contenders, Sens. John Kerry (Mass.) and Bob Graham (Fla.), who will all appear with Davis.

"Clinton's two appearances today were designed to energize committed Democrats at the party's core in California -- African Americans and the Latinos -- and his presence here highlights the national stakes that Democrats see in the recall campaign.

"With a swaying, purple-robed choir behind him and Davis at his side, Clinton stood at the pulpit of the First African Methodist Episcopal Church in Los Angeles, the city's oldest black congregation, and cited Scripture, comparing the recall of the embattled Democratic governor to the mob that wanted to stone an adulteress during Jesus's time.

"'Let he among you without sin, cast the first stone,' Clinton said. Everyone in politics makes mistakes, the former president told the congregation, which interrupted his talk with repeated standing ovations. But he said the recall is misdirected anger. 'Oh, the governor didn't make every single problem go away,' Clinton said. 'So let's throw a rock at him. It'll make us feel better.'

"Clinton appealed for cooler heads. 'Gray Davis and I have been friends for a long time, and I don't want this happening to him. But this is way bigger than him. It's you I'm worried about. It's California I worry about. I don't want you to become a laughingstock, a carnival or the beginning of a circus in America where we throw people out for making tough decisions,' Clinton said.

"Then he paused, and urged California voters, 'Don't do this. Don't do this,' as the congregation erupted in applause."
