On the campaign train, Barack Obama hired Hillary Rodham Clinton's former--and fired--campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle and prepared for the endorsement of his predecessor Democratic nominee Al Gore. ABC had Jake Tapper file from the Obama campaign; NBC's Lee Cowan did a brief stand-up; CBS offered no campaign coverage whatsoever. NBC's Cowan pointed out that in an unprecedented appeal to his supporters on AlGore.com the global warming activist was urging financial backing for Obama. Tapper concentrated on Obama's Father's Day sermon at Chicago's Apostolic Church of God in which he distinguished between a progenitor and a true dad: "Any fool can have a child but that does not make you a father. It is the courage to raise a child that makes you a father."
