If politics got better coverage

Can the Times please move Shaila Dewan into political coverage and let some bored political horse-race hack delve into religion? Her story:

  • Uses lots of revealing quotes from the principals and the commenting sources
  • Names everyone
  • Gives a fresh look at a world I previously knew very little about
The story also reveals in high relief that televangelism is entertainment, but it's well enough written that it never has to come right out and say that.
