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.

Romney's for three decades had been Massachusetts.  On February 13, 2007 Romney officially announced his run for U.S. President as a candidate within the Republican party. He had stopped being Governor of that state for only two months when Hewitt's …

Eighteen months before the 2008 Presidential election will be held there are ten Republican candidates seeking the nomination of their political party. Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, and Mitt Romney are the three Republican front runners at this point in the process. Most Americans at least know something about Giuliani because he was the Mayor of New York City when the Twin Towers came crashing down. Less Americans, but more Republicans and conservatives know something about Senator John McCain because …
