    Interesting strategy, instead of the same old yakety, yak of the institutionalized folks in DC, the microphone was given to Jim Wallis an evangelical leader.. note Wallis has equally criticized both parties in his book, "God's Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get it".

    WASHINGTON -- Democrats and Republicans should work together to find new ways to end poverty, curb government corruption and strengthen families, Rev. Jim Wallis said Saturday.

    "Answering the call to lift people out of poverty will require spiritual commitment and bipartisan political leadership," Wallis, the head of the liberal Sojourners/Call to Renewal, an evangelical social justice movement, said in the weekly Democratic radio address.

    "Real solutions must transcend partisan politics," he said. "It is time to find common ground by moving to higher ground."...

    In the address, Wallis stressed the spiritual underpinnings of issues facing the new Congress, saying leaders need a "new, morally centered discourse on politics."

    "Corruption in government violates our basic principles," he said. "Money and power distort our political decision-making and even our elections."

    He said protecting the environment is a "moral and religious question" and that changing U.S. policy in Iraq is essential.

    "Leaders in both parties are acknowledging that the only moral and practical course is to dramatically change the direction of U.S. policy, starting with an honest national debate about how to extricate U.S. forces from Iraq with the least possible damage to everyone involved," Wallis said.

    He also suggested both parties could find common ground on the divisive issue of abortion.

    "Wouldn't coming together to find common ground that dramatically reduces the number of abortions be better than both the left and the right using it as an issue to divide us?" he asked.

    Tell all that to the "Sore Losers", the most important thing on their agenda that tops anything else including their favorite crybaby topic "poverty" is "GET BUSH".
    This generation of democrats will never get over "Bush Beating Them" twice, all you had to do was watch their grinning sappy faces when they held their little "circle jerk" after winning the election a few weeks ago.

    After the first of the year you will see the REAL AGENDA of the Bush Hating New Democrat POWER POWER POWER.

    Auntie Pelosi started acting up two hours after the polls closed wait until you see her in action next year, poverty will be the last thing on their minds, that is just "a word" they love to throw around when they are leering in front of a camera and the fawning adoring Bush Haters love it.

    Does anybody out there really believe that people like Kerry/Kennedy/Pelosi care about poverty.

    YOU WANTED THEM NOW YOU'VE GOT THEM, SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE SHOW.

    STAY OUT OF DAFUR NO MORE WAR IF THEY WANT TO DRAFT YOU LEAVE THE COUNTRY LIKE CLINTON DID.

    Thats right, the republicans that are blubbering about "working together" are nothing but cowardly sniveling cowards, that stinking Pelosi/Kennedy gang could never "work together" with anyone, even themselves.

    I urge all Patriotic, common sense, law abiding, American politicians to FIGHT the dirty sore losing hateful scum sucking new democrat bastards.

    Any Republican that "works with" these back stabbing democrat maggots should be impeached then shot.

    Well isn't this funny. Those of you who are left of center have been blasting Rove & Co. for their ties to Evangelicals, and here you are posting about Harry Ried passing the mic to an evangelical leader.

    Hmmm.....
