McCain, Obama, and Rick Warren, Oh My

I was excited to read the following from Fox News yesterday:

Barack Obama and John McCain have agreed to their first joint general election appearance, meeting at Saddleback Church on Aug. 16 for a two-hour forum that is being billed as a “non-debate,” according to the church.

Founding pastor and moderator Rick Warren will exclusively pose questions during the Saddleback Civil Forum on Leadership and Compassion to the presumptive presidential nominees. Warren will speak with each candidate for one hour, reads a press release on the event.

Read the rest of the story from Fox News here.  I’m hoping this will be covered by the media in some way.  I really gained a lot of respect for Rick Warren (author of The Purpose Driven Life) after I read that he still drives a beat-up old pickup and used the proceeds from his best selling book to pay back the church that he pastors for several years of paychecks.
