Religion for the General

Brody has a good story on a forthcoming religious youth outreach effort by the Obama campaign called the Joshua Generation Project. (It’s Joshua who brought the Children of Israel into the Promised Land, get it?). Newsweek has a chatty little story on a weekly prayer phone call among Obama-supporting clergy–which Mark Stricherz over at GetReligion thinks should have been harder hitting. So far as I can see, the question regarding religion and the Obama campaign going forward is where it’s going to fit into the overall organizational structure. For all the publicized Obamattention to religion, religious outreach was more centrally located in the Clinton campaign during the primary, and similarly, it’s not been such easy sledding at the DNC either. What I want to see is the new Table of Organization.
