Now two Mormons are having a tilt at the Commander-in-Chief's job.

Mitt Romney and John Huntsman knocking on the door of the Oval Office. The Mormon church is America's own home-grown brand of Christianity: clean-cut, wholesome, righteous,  god-fearing. 

But is the nation ready for a Mormon President?
