    Guess who's coming to dinner: Sarah Palin! Evangelist Billy Graham entertained the former governor of Alaska on Sunday night, when the two talked and ate a meal of chicken, roast beef, and green beans. According to Graham's son Franklin, Palin asked the religious leader about the presidents he had known, and picked his brain about foreign policy, soliciting his reading of the Bible as it pertains to Israel, Iran, and Iraq. Franklin told reporters that his father was a fan of Palin's "strong stand on faith," saying, "Daddy feels God was using her to wake America up." Though Graham's age restricts his ability to visit with politicians as he used to, a private visit with the man is still seen as an important gesture—President Obama called Graham from Air Force One on November 12, and wished him a happy belated birthday.
