Rick Warren gave candidates an early glance at questions

Saddleback pastor Rick Warren gave the presidential candidates an early look at some of the questions he planned to ask them Saturday, the Washington Post reports.

He gave three examples of questions: What is your greatest moral failure? What is America's greatest moral failure? Who are the three people you rely on for wise advice?

Warren's spokesman A. Larry Ross told the Post that Warren provided McCain and Obama with the four subject areas: leadership, stewardship, worldview and international compassion. He also gave them a sense of the themes he would ask about, including topics such as energy and taxes.

On "Larry King Live" tonight, Warren said he thought Sen. John McCain had been in a "green room," what he called a "cone of silence" during Sen. Barack Obama's answers. Instead, McCain was in a car on the way to the church. Warren said that he takes McCain's word that he did not gain an advantage by hearing.
