Does Anyone Remember Hillary Clinton's Seance-Like Encounters With the Late Eleanor Roosevelt?

Presidential-hopeful Hillary Clinton reportedly attempted to conduct seance-like ceremonies to commune with the dead, according decades-old reports now resurfacing.  

The reports first surfaced in famed journalist Bob Woodward's book, The Choice, in which he detailed Clinton's relationship with adviser Jean Houston, who co-directed the Foundation for Mind Research.  

"Most people in the White House did not know about Hillary's sessions with Houston. ... To some of the few who did, the meetings could trigger politically damaging comparisons to Nancy Reagan's use of astrology," Woodward wrote. 

According to Woodward, Clinton and Houston would attempt to contact Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi among others.

But Houston refutes his words and the media attention surrounding it.  

"We were using an imaginative exercise to force her ideas, to think about how Eleanor would have responded to a particular problem," Houston told the New York Times in 1996. "I have never been to a seance." 

Even so, Bill Clinton mentioned the conversations as recently as 2012.  

"I know that because, as all of you famously learned when I served as president, my wife, now the secretary of State, was known to commune with Eleanor on a regular basis," he said. "And so she called me last night on her way home from Peru to remind me to say that. That Eleanor had talked to her and reminded her that I should say that." 

People like Take a Stand Ministries' Eric Barger are horrified that Christians might consider voting for Clinton.  

"It's one thing to elect a secularist whose policies we agree with most. It's quite another to support an admitted practicing occultist for the highest office in the land," Barger says. "Communing with 'the dead' is a dangerous spiritual activity with ominous consequences before God. Biblical Christians have a right, even a responsibility, to expose how serious the ideas embraced by Mrs. Clinton actually are."
