Gotta a question for one of the leading Democratic candidates for president?

God's politics is inviting readers to submit questions, and then plans to allow readers to vote on which questions should be asked to Barack, Hillary, and John at Pentecost 2007.

Even if you don't have a question, you might enjoy watching the forum in which Jim Wallis and friends will be asking the three candidates about their views on faith, moral values, and poverty. The show is to be aired nationally at 7PM eastern on June 4.

Here's a comment from Shane Claiborne touching, methinks, on the whole upcoming election cycle

Perhaps reflect on the following words from George W. Bush: “The ideal of America is the hope of all mankind ... That hope still lights our way. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” And the recent words of Barack Obama on the Late Show with David Letterman, “This country is still the last best hope on earth.” As Christians, how do we reconcile where our ultimate faith lies, especially within an empire as mesmerizing as Rome or America?
