Faithful Democrats - an attempt to change the image

USA Today has taken a swing at the upcoming election with a feature on former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman David Wilhelm's website - Faithful Democrats.

It is "a collection of blogs, theological essays and candidate features and is not officially affiliated with the Democratic Party. The site is designed to rally Christian Democrats and attract socially moderate evangelicals."

This is the kind of thing I like to see. The Democratic Party competing for Christian votes. They aren't quickly "getting religion" but instead focusing on issues that Christians care about and showing how the Democratic Party would address them.

I'd like to see more of this from both parties.
