Mennonite historian and storyteller John L. Ruth doesn’t usually wade into national politics.
So I was surprised to find the photo below on p. 376 of his book Branch: A Memoir with Pictures.
Not since H. S. Bender announced Marilyn Monroe’s suicide at the 1962 Mennonite World Conference has a more surprising juxtaposition occurred.
In the text accompanying the photo, Ruth says
Branch: A Memoir with Photos was published in 2013 before Clinton had decided to run for President.
