Did you watch the Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency Saturday night? Rick Warren hosted Senators McCain and Obama in a conversation format that was pretty interesting and insightful.

I’ve got to tell you that I’m not really enamored of either of these guys, and there was at least one moment in each of their conversations where I thought of these lines from Tennyson’s Maud

Ah God, for a man with heart, head, hand,
Like some of the simple great ones gone
For ever and ever by,
One still strong man in a blatant land,
Whatever they call him, what care I,
Aristocrat, democrat, autocrat–one
Who can rule and dare not lie.
