When the voters look at the cost, poverty will be re-elected.

I was not impressed by this talk by the candidates. I take notes and I summed it up by “BLAH,BLAH, BLAH” No one has any substance! It is sad!

The significant effort to provide an insightful interview sequence among the candidates for nomination by the Democratric party was helpful. I thought that Richardson, Biden, and Dodd were up to the task, with Paula Zahn challenging their positions on the abortion and gays issues as Roman Catholics. The interviews with Clinton, Obama, and Edwards were also very helpful. Now, may the conservative candidates also provide a similar oppportunity by accepting the invitation to participate in a later interview.

i tuned in too late to see edwards but saw obama & clinton & was blown away, impressed how when left mostly to their own devices & given a little time to flesh things out, they spoke w/ such clarity & conviction & i thought authenticity not seen anywhere today on tv but especially not about religion or politics. not a fan of the stump-speaking hillary, i was very impressed w/ the engaging one i saw tonight, especially on this topic. thanks jim & co for putting this together for such a great viewing experience, look forward to a repub one as well. please post the video of this one somewhere for us to see!

Sorry to see that their were not any footage of the ‘packed’ church. The war on poverty will be won one person at a time when the church will again mentor people and help them understand that it is the basics that are important. It will not be a gov’t program out of DC – that just make more burocrats rich. Have a great day .

Anonymous | 06.05.07 – 8:47 pm | #Please – dripping sarcasm? I am not that creative. It is just when the video camera is rolliing and you make a statement like ‘packed’ – go for the gold, it is your best constant. A picture is worth a thousand words. (TBN does this all the time with small groups in tight formation with close on camera shots to give the feeling of a sold out house.) Wallis is not above fudging the stats. There were an ‘overwhelming number of denominations’ at his meeting about the enviroment. 88 to be exact when you read the roster and there are well over 7000 registered denominations in the US/Canada alone.Have a great day .

Later – . moderatelad I guess that I would take that comment seriously if it had not come from somebody’s whose knee-jerk reaction is to accuse SOJO of being in cahoots with Edwards, Clinton, Kennedy and whoever else you have irrational personal disdain for- Truly clever contributions to the discussion.>

Why I Work for Immigration Reform (by Patty Kupfer)
When I tell people that I work on immigration reform, they usually laugh or say, "way to pick an easy topic." Everyday it feels like there is more fear, more hate. Raids are picking up in Nevada, California, and New York. A number of senators who supported comprehensive reform only a few months ago

Verse of the Day: 'peace to the far and the near'
I have seen their ways, but I will heal them; I will lead them and repay them with comfort, creating for their mourners the fruit of the lips. Peace, peace, to the far and the near, says the Lord; and I will heal them. But the wicked are like the tossing sea that cannot keep still; its waters toss u
