With Election Day finally having come and gone, God-o-Meter is closing up shop till 2012–or at least 2010. Till then, get your faith and politics fix over at Beliefnet editor-in-chief Steve Waldman’s blog.
God-o-Meter reported last week that the Obama and Clinton campaigns were stepping up their Catholic outreach operations big time in advance of the Pennsylvania primary. GOM just got word that Obama’s team is announcing an official “Catholic Advisory Council” this afternoon. Here’s the leadership:
Senator Robert P. Casey, Jr. (read the God-o-Meter interview here)
Former Congressman Tim Roemer (read the God-o-Meter interview here)
Sr. Catherine Pinkerton, Congregation of St. Joseph
