While the archbishop of San Antonio expresses dismay that St. Mary's University would allow Hillary Clinton to hold a rally on campus, Barack Obama is retooling his message for blue-collar workers in heavily Catholic Wisconsin. Looking down the road to November, conservative legal scholar Douglas Kmiec is smitten, as a Catholic, with Obama over McCain. No question, Catholics are displacing evangelicals as the religious gang to keep an eye on at this point in the campaign.
