jakes.jpgNewsweek’s got the scoop on the Obama campaign’s many prayer-based conference calls, with separate calls for evangelicals, Roman Catholics, Jews, and African Americans happening each week. The calls have included Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, a spiritual advisor to President George W. Bush (read God-o-Meter’s recent Caldwell interview for a window into how strongly the Obama camp has reached out to him) and T.D. Jakes. One of the reasons why these prayer calls are likely to go over well with religious voters is that they’ve been happening for months, so they won’t come across as a general election ploy to suddenly “get religion.”
