I don't see what this topic has to do with LDSTech, but in any case, the Church has made its position quite clear. The official statement on Political Neutrality says: "The Church does not ... attempt to direct or dictate to a government leader."
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

It is interesting to speculate but it would be little more than speculation. The most well-known, modern example of a U.S. president seeking spiritual direction from an LDS president was perhaps Lyndon Johnson's friendship with David O. McKay, although it might not have been well-known at the time. Even so, President McKay didn't give very specific direction on specific issues and I imagine that would be the case today, even if the President were a member of the church. I doubt Mitt Romney bothered the LDS leaders too much about issues he faced as a governor and I will speculate that, as a U.S. president, he would govern in a similar manner.
