Which candidate for the Republican nomination is going to cross the Rubicon? You know what I’m talking about. Who is going to start criticising Mitt Romney for being a Mormon?!
It’s an important point actually. While I think America could have lived with President Joe Lieberman, and have been down with the Chief Rabbi of New York officiating on state occasions, will they live with the idea of Thomas Monson‘s new role as America’s Pastor?
A President Romney would give Monson an important role in state funerals and important civic events. I am not sure most Americans would tolerate that. Who is going to run the ad? Newt maybe? If he got desperate, would he go there? I am pretty sure he would actually. And I think it would hurt Romney.
Hell, I know I would do it.
