The EFM Feature

This Boston Globe piece talks about the spouses of potential Presidential candidates… and it looks like Mrs. Romney is ready for her husband to run:

On a personal level, Romney is inseparable from his wife, whom he courted when she was 15, entrusted to his father during his two-year Mormon mission to France, and married upon his return.

He carried her home-baked granola as he traveled during the 2008 campaign, and beamed whenever she was around.
Ann Romney largely stayed out of the public spotlight during her husband’s term as governor of Massachusetts, after what she considered unflattering media portrayals during his 1994 Senate and 2002 gubernatorial campaigns.

More recently, though, she has geared up for another run, and Romney has described her as more committed to a second campaign than even him.

“I don’t have a 100-percent answer, ready to go,” he said on CNN in February when asked if he were going to run again. “My wife thinks I should run. She’s absolutely committed. She’s saying, ‘You gotta run, you gotta have somebody who understands the world of the economy, small business, who can create jobs.’ She’s convinced I’ve gotta run. But I have to look more broadly and say, ‘All right, do I have the team to do this?’”
