I did not watch the forum and I admit that when I heard about it, I was befuddled and bothered that Rick Warren be the first moderator of such an event. The evangelicals in this country are a population and force to be acknowledged, yet again, it seems it was another opportunity for those on the right to define the campaign issues.
I agree with hootsbuddy regarding the tailor-made nature of the event and how that played to McCain's advantage. I also agree with his/her comment regarding the nature of the American public's desire or lack of desire for information. The more complex our world is, it appears the simpler the worldview. It's disturbing and concerning, and I can only hope something spawns a demand for something different.
