Romney and His Mormonism

The New York Times has a pretty balanced article exploring the prospect of Mitt Romney's faith becoming a campaign issue for him. It treads over a lot of familiar ground for anyone who has been watching Romney's campaign, but it's still worth a read. It gives us a peek into how Romney's campaign plans to handle the Mormon questions that will likely come up:
[Romney] said he was not concerned about the resistance in the polls. “If you did a poll and said: ‘Could a divorced actor be elected as president? Would you vote for a divorced actor as president?’ my guess is 70 percent would say no. But then they saw Ronald Reagan. They heard him. They heard his vision. They heard his experience. They said: ‘I like Ronald Reagan. I’m voting for him.’ ”

Funny, though, how Romney was someone who tried desperately to distance himself from Reagan when he was trying to out-liberal Kennedy in the early 90s.

If he thought being a transvestite would get him elected Romney would be all over tv in a dress.

Actually Left Ahead, isn't that more Rudy Giuliani's bag?
