    Obama is doing what he said he would, trying to bring all sides together. After all, we are all Americans and it is much better to work together and to split and squabble and divide.

    Two Christian pastors is hardly all sides.

    What about Jews, atheists, Muslims, Buddists, etc.?

    Why are their beliefs being ignored?

    Aren't they American too?

    Trying to satisfy everyone is never a good idea.

    If Obama's idea of leadership is trying to satisfy everyone - even if only symbolically, which is what this is - then he has a long four years ahead of him. Because you can't please everyone.

    Besides, this just seems like he caved in to negative pressure after picking Warren.

    I hope that is not an indication of his future leadership style.
