Mrs. Romney would be a wonderful and inspiring First Lady, one we could be proud of as we were of Laura Bush. One can only imagine how difficult it is for her to help with her husband’s campaign while suffering from multiple sclerosis. Ann Romney is one courageous woman.
Ann Romney More Active in Campaign
In a suburban living room here a few days ago, amid platters of chicken salad tarts and red velvet cupcakes, Mrs. Romney brought a group of local women to tears describing how her husband has stood by her throughout her battle with multiple sclerosis, which once left her debilitatingly depressed and fatigued for months at a time.
“He is there, he is steadfast, you can count on him,” Mrs. Romney told the women. “He won’t abandon you in the hardest times.”
The message was not lost on the voters in the room.
“It says a lot about his character,” said Connie Schmett, who attended the event. “If he is not going to abandon his wife, he is not going to abandon his country.”
I wonder if Ann Romney entering the campaign to endorse her husband had anything to do with Newt’s plea to Mitt for a truce?
MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich called a truce Monday and vowed to run a positive campaign, saying his and his opponents’ shared goal of defeating President Barack Obama in 2012 was more important than winning the nomination.
