  1. at least the dems dont shove religion down our throats. im independent so i have no allegiance to either party, but the dems appear to be much more inclusive.

  2. That’s probably true. I’m bugged that the Dems are moving closer to the GOP on that score, though — and further away from voters like me who do not feel the call of faith at all and even if they did would divorce that faith from political decisions.

  3. I watched the speech on tape delay, so I may not have seen the same angles as home viewers. But I found it interesting that in the shot of Obama the grand temple was reduced to a Huckabee-esque floating cross over one shoulder. Subtle, but I think not accidental.
