    Rick Perry needs to be nominated first, so I think the more his evangelical credentials are discussed, the more likely he will be the choice of that important group. If there is real dirt, my cynical self would not be surprised if it did not come out until after any prospective nomination. In the general, I assumed the faith issues from Obama’s church would hurt him. JFK’s Catholic faith only resulted in his narrow defeat. I am not sure the attempt to Palinize another Republican would be successful.

    I am an evangelical (to whatever extent that word retains any meaning) and no fan of Obama, but I get really suspicious when the beginning of an election cycle corresponds with a politician, Republican or Democrat, talking more openly about his “faith.” I take it only as a sign that Perry is positioning himself for a run in the Presidential primaries.
