Rick Warren To Interview the Candidates—Live!

Pastor Rick Warren, leader of his own megachurch and best-selling author of the The Purpose Driven Life, will talk with both Barack Obama and John McCain about leadership, decision making, and faith in back-to-back hourlong interviews on Saturday. Obama will go first, determined by a coin toss.
During the Saddleback Civil Forum, held at Warren's Saddleback Church in California, the pastor will focus the discussion on four topics—leadership, stewardship, worldview, and vision for America—and he promises to ask the tough questions. "The primaries proved that Americans care deeply about the faith, values, character, and leadership convictions of candidates as much as they do about the issues," Warren said in a press release. "While I know both men as friends and they recognize I will be frank, but fair, they also know I will be raising questions in these four areas beyond what political reporters typically ask. This includes pressing issues that are bridging divides in our nation, such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, climate, and human rights."
The interviews will air live on Fox News, CNN, and online at 5 p.m. —Heather Wax
