Ann Romney: One More Reason to Vote for Mitt

Writing yesterday about his travels in Ohio, Stacy McCain reports attending an event featuring Ann Romney and asks:

Have you seen any stories in the mainstream media about how enormously popular Ann Romney is? Do the TV networks report about how she’s always mobbed by autograph-seekers after her speeches? And if not, why not?

All good questions not just because of Mrs. Romney’s poise, but also because the woman born as Ann Davies obviously had a profound impact on the life of her husband.

He has overcome numerous hurdles during long slog of this campaign, faced tough question from a hostile media and has been the target of perhaps the most expensive TV attack ad campaign in the history of American politics and still managed to come across as a calm and collected leader in three debates and on the campaign trail.

And perhaps, Mitt Romney’s strong — and long-lasting — marriage to his high school sweetheart helps account for his ability to persevere.  As I wrote just a few weeks ago, he likely “wouldn’t have turned out as well as he did without” Ann’s influence.

Before he seriously started wooing Ann, Mitt Romney was an unruly adolescent.  Almost from the outset of their courtship, he became a more focused adult, committed to building a business and concerned about those in his community.

Ann has helped Mitt become a better person.  And let’s hope she is able to help him become a great president.

  1. I think she is strong, stunning and classy. She will make a very refreshing First Lady.

  2. Because Laura Bush is the wife of George W, tells me all I need to know about him. Likewise, Ann Romney is a testament to the kind of person who is Mitt. She will be a very kind, compassionate first lady.

  4. But Ann doesn’t have “fabulously toned arms”! She’s not the second coming of Jackie O, and the fabulous style icon sporting boob belts and child-sized cardigans! Plus she doesn’t care about school lunches and obesity! Vote for Michelle! Do it for the children! Do it for those down and out 1 percenters in the fashion industry! Do it for all those workers necessary for the manufacturing of sleeveless garments! Do it for the 4th Kennedy “Brother”!!!
