If you want to understand who Mitt Romney really is, go beyond the position papers, stump speeches and preposterously presidential coif, and start with muffins.
In some ways, Mr. Helman said, the candidate has grown up in a series of social bubbles: an elite, Detroit-area private school; a tightly knit Mormon community; a single year at Stanford — then in the early days of the 1960s counterculture revolution — followed by a Mormon mission in France; a return to the familiar, mostly Mormon environment of Brigham Young University; a subsequent plunge into fatherhood, family life and an oft-staid professional world.
"I was flying somewhere, I think Iowa, and Romney was on the same flight," said Scott Helman, a staff writer at the Boston Globe and a co-author of "The Real Romney."
