Bishop T.D. Jakes on African Aid and President Bush

Ed Gordon speaks with influential African-American pastor T.D. Jakes, founder of the Potter's House in Dallas, Texas. Jakes was one of several pastors who signed a recent letter to the White House expressing concern that the United States is not doing enough for African nations. Jakes discusses that issue, as well as his increasingly close relationship to President Bush as Republicans strive for more African-American votes.
