It's a matter of opinion. To extend a hand to the religious among us, makes good sense. If they are avoided or the subject equivocated, that candidate will be dead at the starting line. We don't have to win Democrats, we have to motivate conservatives.
what about conservatives who are not religious?

what about conservatives who are pro-choice?

what about conservatives who are religious, but resent the born-again churches that demean their faith?

what about conservatives wot have an education and cannot accept a literal interpretation of the Bible?

truth is, the people you are trying to please are a minority among conservatives....

my turn?
According to Nielsen TV data through mid-January, the average age of Fox News viewers is 68-years-old.
In Frank Rich's New York Magazine article,'Stop Beating a Dead Fox' he calls Fox News a politically conservative 'retirement community' that's losing young viewers at a faster rate than it's competitors.
The average viewers at MSNBC and CNN are 60, and the average is 62-64 for the broadcast networks.
Not only are Fox News viewers old, they're almost all white. Rich points out that only 1.1 per cent of Fox News viewers are black. That's a far lower number than other news networks.
MSNCB has a 25 per cent black audience and CNN has 14 per cent black audience.
Rich quips that conservative candidate Mitt Romney got more black voters at 2 per cent than Fox did at 1.1 per cent.
Fox news has made some attempts at gaining younger viewers by hiring broadcasters such as the young, blonde, and blunt Megyn Kelley.
However, Kelley failed to lure young viewers. In fact, most News networks are grasping to gain an audience from the generation that no longer hails TV as their primary news source.
Most young people read the news on the web or on their smartphones as oppose to on television.
Megyn also did nothing to draw a black audience, especially after she caused a raucous around Christmas when she said that both Santa Claus and Jesus were 'just white' on television in response to a piece Aisha Harris wrote for Slate.com expressing her desire to give Santa Clause a racial makeover.
Basically, Rich thinks Fox News caters to geriatric conservative white people and tells them exactly what they want to hear--especially politically.
Rich explains that on Election day in 2012, election data (gathered by Fox News network favorite Scott Rassmusen proven to have GOP bias in 2010) was spiked in favour of Mitt Romney. Obama ended up winning the election.
Even Romney's senior advisor, Eric Fehrnstrom, noted Fox's conservative favouritism.
'We’d much rather go on a Fox program where we know the question is going to come up and Mitt can give his answer and it’s not going to a frenzy of questioning,' he said.
Rich believes the age of Fox's conservative white viewers will continue to rise.

we might make more money if they would quit spilling it on the ground. though pipelines are no better.

4. Current Keystone Pipeline Leaked 12 Times in Last Year

The pipeline that the Obama administration has rejected the permit for would be an extension of a pipeline that has already leaked -- not just once, but 12 times in the last year.

While TransCanada tried to dismiss these leaks as “minor” averaging “just five to 10 gallons of oil” each, the leak on May 7, 2011 near Millner, N.D., spilled about 21,000 gallons of oil in total.

This is the trouble with these so called interviews, its not about Obama, its all about Bill O.
Poor ole Bill is trying to stick his neck out of the mud on a network that is sinking fast.
I mean look at their audience, a bunch of fat old white guys and their spouses. Most of which are on Medicare and retired and not much disposable income for advertisers to milk. It won't be long now before the only advertising you will see on Fox news will be from the NRA and diaper companies.

Republican picks for Texas lieutenant governor all want creationism taught in schools
I see modern America continues to make great strides in the field of not believing in things.
All the Republican candidates running for Texas lieutenant governor agree: Creationism needs to be taught in schools.
At a statewide televised debate Monday, the four Republican candidates said they would like to see the religious theory taught in the classroom, according to videos of the event.
That people can get elected to high office still believing that certain segments of science Do Not Exist is something we really need to address. You shouldn't have to be a genius, heaven knows, but it would be nice if we could count on our elected leaders to, say, remain calm during the appearance of the next comet and not immediately accuse one of their constituents of sky-destroying witchcraft. I hear there is some debate over the precise dimensions of Noah's Ark—perhaps the Texas of 20 years from now will be embroiled in a new controversy when some teacher is discovered to have taught the good Texas children the wrong version, thus shattering the poor children's religious roots and sending them down the path to sin and rampant drug abuse.
State Sen. Dan Patrick and Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples indicated they think the absence of creationism in schools is an affront to Christianity.
“I don’t think we have to live in a state where we need to apologize for being a Christian....[Creationism] is something that most Texans believe in, and our children need to be exposed to this,” Staples said.
Well, if most Texans believe it, clearly the realities of the universe must bend to accommodate them. I suspect most Texas children of a certain age believe Pokemon are real—perhaps we should change the biology curriculum to reflect that, as well.
The reason I have so little patience for these people, at this point: There are many, many Christians who do not believe in creationism, at least not the ultra-literal interpretation favored by the more talibanesque elements of the base, who consider the teaching of supernatural explanations for scientific phenomenon to be an "affront" to them and their children. Not even those people are allowed to be heard, much less any of the Americans who subscribe to—shudder—something else. Once again, a set of dull-minded fundamentalists insists that their version of Christianity can be the only true one, and that all of America should naturally bow down before it, and that anyone with religious beliefs that differ in even the slightest fraction to their own should be driven from the public square so that their religion, their scientific ignorances, their moral decisions can be erected over the top of the nation like a gallows and noose.
