This was supposed to be ladies' night at the RNC, and it was no time for subtext. "I love you, women!" blurted out Ann Romney, in a departure from her prepared remarks.
These women, she said, were chiefly the "moms who always have to work a little harder, to make everything right." Ann Romney has had to work a little harder to persuade people that her husband is who she says he is, never more so than tonight, but her speech kept inexorably pointing at her husband and his party's indifference to doing anything about that general disparity.
