I must confess that I watched the Saddleback forum with Senators McCain and Obama rather reluctantly. I am not a fan of most politicians and televised "debates" are usually not debates at all. But the Saddleback forum was different. Rather than having one minute to avoid answering a direct question the candidates were given the time to answer thoughtfully and thoroughly (if they so chose). By the time the forum ended I came to the conclusion that the format was far more helpful than any of the major network debates (which are not debates at all). So, kudos to Rick Warren and Saddleback for what was a truly helpful service to those of us who plan on voting in November.
