The talk of the day was definitely Mitt Romney's giving what they're calling the "JFK speech." He plans to deliver the address Thursday which will address his faith in the LDS church and what impact that has on his candidacy and would have on him as President.
We played some of then candidate John F. Kennedy's speech to give historic perspective. Thanks to our producer Adam Thomas for that. It was so interesting to hear him say, "I am not the Catholic candidate. I am a candidate who happens to be Catholic." The comparisons are inevitable, and there is mixed opinion on whether they will help or hurt Mitt Romney. There is also debate this morning on whether or not Romney's slipping behind Huckabee in the polls prompted the timing of the speech this Thursday.
