Item description for A Mormon in the White House?: 10 Things Every Conservative Should Know about Mitt Romney by Hugh Hewitt...
Overview Radio host and blogger Hugh Hewitt sets out to explain Republican Gov. Mitt Romney, his unusual faith story, and the importance of that debate in a headline-making and election-shaping opening shot in the campaign before the campaign.
According to author and radio personality Hewitt, Mitt Romney-billionaire venture capitalist, consummate family man, gifted and media-savvy politician-would be unstoppable in the coming presidential race were it not for one niggling line on his resumé: he's a Mormon. In this unashamedly partisan volume, Hewitt attempts to refute the claim that no Mormon could get elected President (along with any other claim that might be made against Romney) while analyzing the former Massachusetts governor's biography and burnishing his conservative and leadership credentials. Hewitt is an agreeable, if inelegant, writer, wise enough to take detours (such as an edifying primer on Mormon history and thought) that stave off tedium. He spends far more time extolling Romney than excoriating his Republican and Democratic opponents. This is an efficient and effective exercise in political hagiography.
