Ann Romney, All Things To All Women?


One of the Romney's daughters-in-law, Laurie, who is married to Matt Romney, said she is grateful to Ann for taking her under her wing, which included teaching her "to cook and she, more, even more importantly than that, she taught me to be a really good support to Matt and to not, to not always weigh him down with all the, you know, all the little hard things during the day but to be positive."


Another daughter in law said Ann Romney taught her to "shop for heels."

The honest, loving musings of five women who truly admire Ann Romney? Of course. But they belie the retro feel of her husband's entire campaign, just like the unsubtle blaring of "My Girl" did as it punctuated Ann Romney's Tuesday night "I love women!" speech.
