Drum On Saddleback

An interesting insight:

For better or worse, Obama seems to have chosen to treat this event as sort of an intimate evening with Rick Warren that just happened to be nationally televised. McCain, by contrast, treated it as a straight campaign event: he had his stump speech talking points ready, and he was eager to cram as many of them into his 50 minutes as possible.

I don't know if this was a good decision on Obama's part, but I don't have any doubt that he'll choose a much more direct speaking style at his three face-to-face debates with McCain.
