What would Bush's Jesus do? Endorse Obama, apparently.
You'd think that President Bush's spiritual adviser, the man who gave the benediction at both of his inaugurations, would be throwing his weight into the Republican race for president, if he threw his weight at all.
Not so. AP is reporting that Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, senior pastor of Houston's Windsor Village United Methodist Church, has endorsed Barack Obama for president, and he called Bush to tell him the news.
Obama "would do a wonderful job to bring people together to pursue a common vision we all have," says The Reverend.
President Bush, saying he was "OK" with the choice, apparently assured Rev. Caldwell that his presidential pick would not dampen their relationship.
