GRITtv Live Now: Has Obama Fixed His Rick Warren Problem?

Is it a classic case of forgive and forget? This week Obama called on gay Episcopal bishop, Gene Robinson, to deliver the invocation at the ceremonial kick-off to Inauguration Week at the Lincoln Memorial. Has this addition to the inaugural lineup offset Obama's pick of evangelical celebrity Rick Warren, outspoken opponent of gay marriage and a woman’s  right to choose, chosen to deliver the invocation at the 56th President’s swearing in ceremony? 


To talk about whether Obama has fixed his Rick Warren problem are Jane Hamsher, Faye Wattleton, Kenyon Farrow, and Eleanor Smeal.
