Clearly you UNDERESTIMATE the value of Sarkozy and Hollande And I agree with Dave that his religious position is a big burden for him.

IMHO Mormonism is just too wierd for a lot of people.He has one wife, Ann and does not come across as a religious nut.If you had to guess from a distance, you would think Episcopalian, which is like High Church Anglican to you.

Quote He has one wife, Ann and does not come across as a religious nut but his granddaddy had many (was it 11 or 61 not sure) ... it doesn't matter how many he has had or the fact that Newt has actually had 3. this is going to be dirty.Quote If you had to guess from a distance, you would think Episcopalian, which is like High Anglican to you Nobody will be given the option of guessing... America is going to find out a lot about Mormonism that it probably doesn't want to.

QuoteOriginally posted by: trackstar...and does not come across as a religious nut.Yes, he's not preaching. And I haven't heard him saying that "god" tells him what to do. Why is it that politicians get away with all that god stuff? Imagine any other professional would argue like this: Hey, why did you buy that future? God said so. Hey, why do you think I should get a bypass? Well, I prayed over it. What can you recommend tonight? Well, according to god our veal short rib is the best.
