    Romney is just an end point for the flow of information. They likely just give him broad sets of information. There must be a alternative to some of clearance mechanisms. What happens when a person, scholar, or business has talents, technology, inventions, or production needed by the security fortress? Is there just an oath mechanism?

      I suspect the President is automatically cleared for everything, by definition, but other than that, my guess is that laws and regulations rule.

      Well, having said that, Michell Bachman is on the House Intelligence Committee, so something is wrong with my guess, eh?

      Although for all her craziness, I doubt she's got a Caymans bank account.... but she did have some sort of dual citizenship thing going with Switzerland, didn't she?

      And to your original point: nobody working for Mitt now has a government job, so none of them has any kind of security clearance, I suspec.
