Joint Press Conferences

The Obama and McCain campaigns have agreed on a schedule for their joint press conferences (which the political establishment persists in mislabeling as "debates") during the fall campaign. Despite earlier talk about innovation in timing and format, the agreed schedule looks very similar to those for previous election years.

However, the candidates did participate in an unusual event last weekend. They did not appear together, but were interviewed back-to-back at Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, California, by Pastor Rick Warren. I haven't written about that event because I didn't have time to watch it, and have not been able to catch up with what happened. The gist of what little I've picked up is that McCain's supporters think McCain "won", and his opponents think he cheated.
