Note – Most of my blogging now occurs at a new media company. My blog is here.
John McCain had a good night at Rick Warren’s forum on faith and character and so on. Barack Obama had a better night. How much better? We’ll find out in a few months.
It isn’t that Obama out performed McCain. He didn’t “out Jesus” him or “out evangelical-ize” him. The crowd seemed to favor McCain a bit.
But that’s the thing.
He didn’t need to. For Obama a draw was a massive win.
Here was an audience of evangelicals in one of the most conservative counties in the United States. They interrupted him with applause on numerous occasions. They gave him a standing ovation. And HE is the Democratic nominee for President of the United States. Think this ever happened to John Kerry in 2004?
