NBC has been making an effort over the last few weeks to offer profiles on the major Presidential candidates--and a potential one. In addition to the general run of election news, NBC's extra efforts have included Janet Shamlian on Barack Obama, Brian Williams on Michael Bloomberg, Ron Allen on Mitt Romney and Andrea Mitchell on Hillary Rodham Clinton. Now John Yang follows Rudolph Giuliani to Virginia, where he addressed Regent University and granted a 700 Club interview to the university's founder Pat Robertson, the onetime leader of the Christian Coalition. "Talk about strange bedfellows," quipped Yang--or maybe not so strange. Yang cited his own network's poll of white evangelical Christians, which showed Giuliani leading (22% v John McCain 19%, Fred Thompson 18%, Mitt Romney 12%) "despite reservations about Giuliani from virtually every leader of the religious right."
