Romney: Jokes About Bain, Mormonism, And Says "Hell"

The reserved candidate expressed a willingness to talk about his Mormon faith — and used a joke to show the humor usually masked when the cameras are on. In that one line, Romney did more to combat his robotic reputation than more than a year on the campaign trail.
