Romney is no J.F.K.

Quote from Jon Krakauer in a column from Maureen Dowd. Krakauer, author of "Under the Banner of Heaven," about Mormonism, considers it strange that Mitt is trying so hard to win over evangelicals who don't even consider him to be a Christian. What's faith got to do with being a president?

“J.F.K.’s speech was to reassure Americans that he wasn’t a religious fanatic,” Mr. Krakauer agreed. “Mitt’s was to tell evangelical Christians, ‘I’m a religious fanatic just like you.’”
