Squaring off with Sascha Burns on British TV

I was invited by the producers of Channel 4, one of the BBC's competitors in the UK, to appear on a live segment of their 7pm broadcast this past Saturday, December 22, to discuss the 2008 US Presidential race, particularly the role of religion in the primaries.

I was live in the studio with the anchorwoman Samira Ahmed, while veteran Democrat operative and well-known pundit Sascha Burns joined from DC through a satellite feed.

The discussion was lively and I did my best to introduce the British audience to Ron Paul's candidacy, as you will see in the clip. Notice the opening volley about the 1st Amendment and the Establishment clause, that developed when Burns felt compelled to respond to my mention of "militant secularism".
