Falwell: Anyone but Hillary

April 7, 2006 at 8:18 PM

CHARLESTON, W.Va., April 7 (UPI) -- The Rev. Jerry Falwell told a group of West Virginia Baptists his main goal for 2008 is to prevent Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., from becoming president.

Falwell addressed the annual West Virginia Convention of Southern Baptists, the Charleston Gazette reported. An audience of about 500 was gathered in the Cross Lanes Baptist Church.

Falwell had good words for President George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. McCain called Falwell an "agent of intolerance" in 2000, but is scheduled to be the commencement speaker this year at Falwell's Liberty University.

Falwell did not say who he would like to be elected president in 2008. He said it is too early to endorse anyone.

"We've been working very feverishly now to make sure that Hillary doesn't go in in '08," he said.

Falwell said the United States is clearly in trouble.
