Rick Warren the new Billy Graham?

With all the hubbub over Pastor Rick Warren's planned role in the Obama inauguration, I have to wonder if Warren is about to assume Billy Graham's former role as unofficial pastor to the Presidency.

Frankly, at this point in time, no pastor who doesn't oppose gay marriage is capable of assuming that role.

But Warren isn't exactly a hardcore political conservative. He's got sort of a new-agey Salvation Army vibe. He's about as squishy as a pastor can credibly get and still advise a future Republican President.

And that's just the point.
