Presidential candidates face off at Saddleback
California mega-church pastor Rick Warren will interview the presumptive presidential candidates at 9 p.m. Eastern tonight.
The candidates will probably not introduce new political stances, but they may pitch new ideas of how to respond to issues like abortion or the environment.
So far, though, it seems as though several people are more interested in the questions Warren will ask. Warren has been kind of a poster child for evangelicals who have expanded their "agenda" from abortion and homosexuality to HIV/AIDS and the environment.
"I think Rick is in an unenviable position in that he stands to get attacked from the right and the left, based on what direction he takes," Mark DeMoss, an evangelical public relations specialist told Rachel Zoll of the Associated Press. "As an evangelical, I am much more interested in his list of questions than in either of their answers."
