Barack Obama and John McCain plan to be on the same stage this Saturday night, August 16, 2008 in a Lake Forest, California church. Rev. Rick Warren, notable author of The Purpose Driven Life and Pastor of Saddleback Church has invited both men to a leadership and compassion forum where he will be asking the questions. Both men have agreed to attend.
The format consists of the Pastor asking each man a series of questions one at a time. They will not be together on stage during the Q & A. This is so that each person can speak without interruption. Also, Pastor Warren has a rapport with each of these men prior to this presidential year, and believes that he can provide an environment where both men can give a true representation of who they are and what they stand for.
The Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency will be nationally televised from 5:00 to 7:00 PM PST (8:00 to 10:00 PM EST) on August 16th, 2008 on FoxNews and CNN. You can also view it live online.
