The Romney Lovebirds, Continued

Jonathan Martin picks up on a theme I noticed in May (part one here; part two here):

As close watchers of the GOP race know, he [Mitt] gushes over Ann Romney at public events, calling her "sweetheart" and even explaining how "they're still going steady." But watching Romney interact with her out of the direct public eye reveals an even greater depth of devotion. He unfailingly opened doors for her, graciously introduced her and whenever he had a moment along the parade route would turn around and tease her for riding in the air-conditioned "Mitt Mobile." "Real hard for Ann this time," he joked.
