Conservatives Concerned About Obama

Ad Feedback

Results of the 2008 presidential election have brought mixed emotions from evangelical leaders.

James Dobson, founder of the faith-based group Focus on the Family, congratulated President-elect Obama on his radio program, but said he felt his victory represented a setback for the pro-life movement.

"I want to admit that I am in the midst of a grieving process at this time," he said. "That's not all bad. Grieving is a good thing when you're dealing with emotions that have taken you by surprise. I'm not grieving over Barack Obama's victory, but over the loss of things that I've fought for 35 years."

And there are numerous others who agree with Dobson.

Two-dozen conservative leaders met after the election to talk about the future of the conservative movement.

Terry Jeffrey, president of CNS News, was at that meeting. Click play to watch as he tells CBN News about the top concerns.
