18. I think I mentioned that it was in church and in front of preachers
But I for one, even though I consider myself a religious person, would find it extremely refreshing if a candidate for office would have as part of his/her entire and official campaign the promise that he/she will never involve himself/herself in a discussion of religion. Even though Obama's political speech took place in a church, (and is there any doubt that it was a political speech through and through?) it doesn't mean it has to involve references to the candidate's own personal beliefs. I hope some day we are beyond that in America.
