"Crowds of mostly women waited eagerly to hear from the mother of five, the grandmother of ten, and the potential next future first-lady of the United States.


"Mrs. Romney served as the perfect spousal surrogate: touting Mitt Romney as a loving husband, valuable father, and successful businessman, volunteer and governor. But she said he's not done yet, 'Wait until he gets his hands on Washington...he's going to tear it up.'" ...
