Mark Silk on Gov. Perry's Prayerfest

Mark Silk perceives the danger for Rick Perry that I do: By hosting, not merely attending, a prayer meeting that was not, in the American civic tradition, inclusive of many faiths, he has set himself up as "pastor-in-chief" a position that contrasts neatly with that pushed by Mitt Romney. That is a debate I want to watch.
