Obama and McCain to stump at Saddleback mega-church

It's official. Obama and McCain will make a joint campaign appearance at Saddleback Church in California on August 16. Pastor Rick Warren said in a press release, "We're honored that the candidates chose The Saddleback Civil Forum on Leadership and Compassion for their first joint appearance, an unprecedented opportunity for America to hear both men back-to-back on the same platform."

According to Warren, each candidate will converse with him for one hour and all media are invited.

Both candidates recorded video messages for attendees at Saddleback's annual Global Summit on AIDS and The Church last November. Located in Orange County, Saddleback has about 22,000 members.
