Well, we can’t say this was unexpected. Here’s Rabbi Michael Lerner speaking on behalf of the Jewish faith at boxing legend Muhammad Ali’s funeral Friday in Louisville.

In this clip, he appeals to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to establish a Palestinian state and offers up this message to the next President of the United States:

Tell the next president of the United States that SHE should seek a constitutional amendment to make all national and state elections funded by Congress and the slate legislatures or all other sours of money be banned, including money from corporations, from individuals — all other money, make it all public funding!

And the audience — including Bill Clinton who was in attendance — loved it.
