Romney's political future?

Some Mormons have expressed disappointment over John McCain's choice as running mate: Sarah Palin of Alaska.  Many Latter-day Saints were hoping that McCain would choose former Mass. governor Mitt Romney.  Romney's credentials are somewhat strong, and many speculate that he has a strong political future on the horizon.  

Now that Mitt won't be President of Vice-President (this time, at least), perhaps John McCain--if he wins in Nov. '08-- will recruit him for a cabinet-level position.  With Romney's solid "economic" experience, he could fill positions such as Sec. of Commerce or Sec. of Treasury in a Republican administration.  

Now we'll look to see if there is any room for Mormons in an Obama administration.  Stay tuned.
