Do Mormons talk to the dead?

I watched the last 45 minutes of the CNN debate betwixt and between the GOP presidential candidates.

Anderson Cooper, sporting a bad new haircut, asked a particularly smarmy question of the group.

'Would Ronald Reagan endorse you?'

I have to say, Huck gave the best answer... that it would be presumptious to suggest that anybody would know President Reagan's reaction to the remaining candidates.

The Mormon couldn't say 'yes' fast enough. He then recited a list of the reasons why the Gipper would endorse him, including support for a Federal Marriage Amendment.


How would Mitt know that? Has he been given golden tablets, like Joseph Smith?

This is the President who put Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court. In response to an earlier question about what the candidates thought about Justice O'Connor's tenure on the court, Mitt came the closest to criticizing that decision.
