E. J. Dionne Jr. – Obama’s Invitation to Warren Is a Risk Worth Taking – washingtonpost.com
By inviting Pastor Rick Warren to give the inaugural invocation, President-elect Barack Obama has alienated some of his friends on the left. By accepting, Warren has enraged some of his allies on the right.
Obama and Warren have helped each other in the past, and both know exactly what they’re doing.
If you’re on the left, how you view Obama’s move depends upon who you think Warren is, where you think he’s going, and what you think Obama is up to.
