Guests:

Sen. John Danforth, former Ssenator from Missouri (Republican); former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations; currently a partner at the law firm Bryan Cave LLP; Episcopal priest

Rep. Thomas Tancredo (R-CO), Catholic who converted to Evangelical Presbyterian

Sen. Joe Lieberman, Democratic senator from Connecticut
