Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Barack Obama (D-IL) traveled to Unity, New Hampshire to emphasize (read: "hammer home") their admiration for, and support of, each other. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is in Colombia, where he promises not to talk about the campaign. At all. And Gen. Wesley Clark (Ret.) questioned the relevance of a candidate's military experience. Or lack thereof.

Our Political Junkie, Ken Rudin, will join us at the Newseum, to talk about the continuing campaign. And we'll hear from Michael Gerson — once a speech writer for President Bush, now a columnist. McCain met with the Rev. Billy Graham last week, and Obama has talked a lot about religion lately. We'll ask Gerson about the role religious and evangelical voters will play in this election.

If religion plays a role in how you vote, what do you think of what the candidates have said about faith thus far? What would you like to hear them say?
