The politics of pandering prayer

Obama picks Rick Warren, as the minister to give the invocation, and then picks openly gay Rev. Gene Robinson to give the invocation at the Lincoln Memorial.

But Robinson's prayer wasn't in HBO's live broadcast, and the Inaugural committee said it was a "simple mistake."

If you missed his prayer it's hear. It starts, " O God of our many understandings...."

OK, we placated the left and the right. Can we get on with the people's business?
