Phil: I'm a little surprised you consider the fact that half of American voters probably would not vote for a Mormon is a "petty issue." To me, this seems HUGE. Imagine if it was said about a papist. The press would have gone into paroxysm of supraventricular tachycardia. Anway I hope you are wrong when you say a lot of people want to have an emotional relationship with their candidate/president. I mean, I hope that's not what got Lincoln elected. Looking back at our illustrious line of presidents, few seem to have been the type I would want to have an emotional relationship with. Maybe Reagan, maybe Clinton and Kennedy, but what kind of freak wanted an emotional relationship with Nixon, Johnson or Bush I? I doubt even their wives wanted that sort of thing. Heh. Finally Romney looked "slick" when he was standing next to a bunch of frumpy old women like McCain and Fred Thompson and the Rev. Huckster. Perhaps he should have mussed up the hair a bit and worn some old shoes, but that would have not been Mitt. Besides slick didn't seem to hurt "Slick Willy."
