Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From my DKos diary:
This is wholly speculative, but if I had to guess who and why is pushing the story that the Religious Right is supporting Obama I would say that the leaders of the Evangelical movement are seeing that the Republican party is imploding and have decided to move their voting bloc into the Democratic Party. Evangelicals are not known for logic or consistency, and moreover the followers are quite gullible. This book, to be published in August and not unlikely to make the NYT bestseller list like its predecessor, might just be the last thing to push the Evangelicals (who already don't like McCain) to vote for Obama.

If this speculation is correct, the progressive netroots should get ready for a raft of Evangelicals running in the Democratic primaries in 2010.
