didn't Barak Obama, when speaking to Rick Warren, take credit for this new "plank" in the Democratic platform???

Thomas More

He probably did--I don't recall--but, in fairness, the candidate almost always totally controls what gets modified in that year's platform. So if Tony C was the agent who actually proposed the change, you can bet Obama and/or his advisors signed off on allowing it to go through the platform committee. In that way, he probably should get some credit--unless he said 'no' to Campolo and Campolo got it passed through over Obama's objection--which I very much doubt.
