Both major presidential campaigns are dodging the "P word" -- poverty -- and misleading voters with a myopic vision of terror, evangelist Jim Wallis, in Madison on the Rolling to Overcome Poverty bus tour, said Friday.
"Whoever is elected, we had better be at their front door to make clear that poverty is the weapon of mass destruction for America," Wallis said in an interview.
"It touches everything else, in its social costs and connections to terrorism. Investing in a different future makes sense and is the right thing to do. But neither party has that kind of vision."
