When Does Hillary Start Her Apologetics Tour?

Hillary Clinton has so many endorsements, she can’t keep them all straight. Her campaign may have to rely on that explanation after the AP looked through her list of ministers at a South Carolina event and found a few misrepresentations. The number of organizations endorsing Hillary appears significantly lower than implied on her web site.

As campaign scandals go for Hillary, this is pretty mundane, but it does show considerable sloppiness. At Heading Right, however, I ask why Hillary can surround herself with ministers but Mitt Romney has to provide apologetics for his religion. We have a double standard at work here. Shouldn't Hillary have to explain the theological reasons she sought the endorsements of all these ministers, especially when Romney has done nothing of the sort?
