U.S. Bishop invite McCain & Obama to a Pow-Wow

Now that sounds like a good idea to me.

I don't think it will happen but it is a good idea.

Bishops invite presidential candidates for a sit-down

They're saying "stop on by!":
Leaders of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) have invited both major party presidential candidates to meet with them before the election, reportedly to discuss social issues. The bishops who would attend any such meeting are chairmen of USCCB committees on pro-life issues, education, migration, international affairs and communications.A spokeswoman for the McCain campaign told the Wall Street Journal that the Republican senator wants to accept the invitation, but does not know if he can fit a meeting into his schedule.Sister Mary Ann Walsh, Media Director of the USCCB, confirmed to CNA that neither candidate has accepted the invitation yet.


McCain has already been sitting down with some of the Bishops already.

The McCain campaign also disclosed last month that the senator was meeting privately with Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia. He met with Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver shortly before the Democratic convention. Both were outspoken critics of Ms. Pelosi and Mr. Biden.

Also from Catholic Culture - Obama, McCain make case for Catholic Vote: Bishops seek meetings
