CNN to air Saddleback Presidential Forum hosted by Pastor Rick Warren: Saturday, August 16, 8:00PM – 10:00PM (ET)
For the first time since winning their parties respective nominations, Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill.) will both appear during the high-definition CNN broadcast of the Saddleback Civil Forum on Leadership and Compassion. The candidates will speak separately with the forum’s host, pastor and author Dr. Rick Warren, and will discuss issues including compassion, faith, values and leadership.
Both candidates will uh and um and blather their way incoherently with vague platitudes about religion throughout this two-hour event.
Gregg Jackson has 15 questions Warren should ask the candidates.
Don’t expect any of them to be asked, though.
According to a recent NY Times article, Mr. Warren was quoted as saying:
“Since I’m their friend, I’m not going to give them any gotcha questions,” Mr. Warren said, adding that a typical query would be, “What’s the most difficult decision you’ve had to make, and how did you make it?”
