Obama, McCain Face-Off At Megachurch

Presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain will meet this weekend at Saddleback Church in Southern California. Both candiates will be pressed on matters of faith and their national agenda by the Rev. Rick Warren, who leads the congregation.

Pamela Gentry, Washington Bureau Chief for BET networks; NPR Political Editor Ken Rudin and political blogger Michael Sean Winters discuss the candidates' appeal to voters of faith and how a visit to Warren's megachurch could boost that appeal.
