Political observers mark your calendars: The conservative Family Research Council is planning a "Values Voters Summit" in DC from October 19-21. USA Today has the details. "The council advertises the conference ... as 'the largest gathering of values voters from across the nation.' It will include a gala dinner honoring James Dobson, head of Focus on the Family... No word yet on whether any presidential candidates will be working the crowd."

Also: "A debate called 'The Role of Faith & Politics in 2008' pits Jim Wallis, an evangelical Christian who edits the magazine Sojourners, against Richard Land, head of the Southern Baptist Convention's government affairs arm and host of three syndicated radio programs."
