No Mormon PRESIDENT in 2008, but how about as Vice President???
On the Republican side of the presidential race, there are two prominent Mormon political leaders who are rumored to be on McCain's short list of VP potentials.
To the left above is Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr. He is the current governor of Utah and has enjoyed one of the highest approval ratings among American governors this decade. He is a moderate Republican in favor of school vouchers.
On the right above is a guy we all recognize: W. Mitt Romney, ex-savior of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Also, he worked as governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Now, how about among Democrats? Are there any Mormons on Barack Obama's list of potential running mates? I don't think so. The most prominent LDS Democrat is Harry Reid.
