This year's Sunstone Symposium is underway at the University of Utah, drawing scholars of Mormonism from inside and outside the LDS church.  It includes lots of presentations on political topics because of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.  While he's the first Mormon to win a major party nomination, he's certainly not the first to run.
