    Every morning, sometimes as early as 5:30 a.m., a short religious passage comes across President Obama's BlackBerry, sent by one of his aides. At other moments, Obama prays privately, his advisers said. And when he takes his family to Camp David on the weekends, a Navy chaplain ministers to them, with the daughters attending a form of Sunday school there. More than a year into his presidency, Obama has not chosen a church in Washington, and has attended services just four times. No single figure has assumed the role of spiritual adviser -- publicly, at least -- or filled the...

    Former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton have proposed the establishment of a broadly inclusive alternative Baptist movement to counter what they called a negative image of Baptists and to address poverty, the environment and global conflicts.

Carter and Clinton announced a “Celebration of a New Baptist...

    The New York Times is giving a lecture on the Middle Class. None other than Comrade Barbara Ehrenreich, a leader of the Democratic Socialists of America, will be one of the panelists. The Times doesn't want you to know that Comrade Ehrenreich is a living, breathing, socialist so they just say Barbara Ehrenreich-author of 13 books, including the bestselling “Nickel and Dimed”. That way you will not get confused on what's the difference between the "progressive editorials" of Gail Collins and socialism. No word yet on whether Comrade Ehrenreich wants to share her personal wealth with the people.

    DENVER - Moderate Democrats think they have the key to winning back power in Washington and across the country - a package of economic proposals aimed at giving every American a shot at reaching the middle class. "We thought it was important and necessary to rekindle the American dream," said Gov. Tom Vilsack of Iowa, a potential 2008 presidential candidate and the chairman of the Democratic Leadership Council, a centrist think tank.
