Now that the dust has settled from Glenn Beck's weekend revival at the Lincoln Memorial, two messages need to be delivered loud and clear.

First: the United States of America has NEVER been a Christian nation, but there are those who would make it so, past and future.

And second: do not discount Glenn Beck becoming president of the United States.

I say these things after having sat through nearly all of the 17-part video rendering of Beck's rally this past weekend, and having read as many critiques of it---left and right---as I could find.

This rally was not about intellectual content, and it's a mistake to analyze it that way.

Its organizers kept the verbal content extremely simple: honor the military, "restore America," have faith in your churches, follow their lead, and donate generously.

Much of the real meaning was in who was missing.
