When I was at NYU, our most hotshot of the hotshot professors was this fellow Noah Feldman (now a Harvard hotshot). A while ago I had a post about an article he wrote in NY Times called "What is it About Mormonism?" and the keynote address he gave at the Princeton University conference on Mormonism and Politics.
Now it turns out he gave a devotional (or forum?) address at BYU late last year entitled "Few Are Chosen: Comparative Religion in the Public Sphere". In his talk, Feldman marches us through the history of presidential candidates from his home state of Massachusetts for whom their religious affiliation or standing was in issue in their candidacy. I found it to be more informative than insightful, but definitely interesting to listen to and I recommend it to you.
(Also cool: Feldman is introduced by John Tanner, one of my favorite professors from my undergraduate experience)
Bonus Devotional Discovery: My Grandma's cousin, Elder Spence J Condie, just gave a devotional there, too.
