Quotes:

bullet"This year's presidential election has often seemed to be more of a race for pastor-in-chief, than commander-in-chief. We seem to have become obsessed with the candidates' religion to the point of distraction. It is one thing for a candidate to talk about their faith; it is quite another to imply that you should vote for them because of it. Faith can play a positive role in public life, but not as a political tool." Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy president of The Interfaith Alliance Foundation, the
bullet"The forces that would merge religion and government are alive and well in this country.  We need to make sure the Religious Right does not dominate the public square in this election year. The American people want to know where the candidates stand on the critical issues of the day, not what their favorite Bible verse is." Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

About the race:

Starting over a year before the 2008-NOV elections, CNN and other news outlets started to focus much of their resources on the presidential race. Senator John McCain was the successful Republican party candidate; Senator Barak Obama was selected after a close race with Senator Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Party candidate.

Senator Obama won the election by a narrow majority of popular vote and a landslide according to the electoral college votes. He will apparently become America's sixth "black" president in 2009-JAN.
