11. Be prepared for Beck to try and prop Romney up.
My wife works for a company with a very strong Mormon management chain. She's worked in a number of medium to large companies and she's seen her share of "boys" clubs" in which the men in the organization help each other, even passing over better candidates for promotions, etc.

But she tells me this company sets the new bar. It is a Mormon boys club. She watches the Mormon men get quickly promoted well beyond their ability, often taking on an "assistant" who does the real work. The sense of many is that this preferential treatment comes straight out of their shared religion. Its just what they do.

I continue to bet that Beck's job going forward will be to try and mitigate the Mormon issue for Romney.
