Part of what I’m doing in this book is telling the Democrats, the liberals, they have to change, fundamentally change. This is not a kind of change they’re going to come up with in 2006 and 2008, because you can be sure that every Democratic party candidate is going to be quoting Bible and telling about their own church experience. But most people’s crisis in their lives is not about Democrats not quoting Bible enough.
