Emily Friedman has a good catch about how the Olympic success of Ann Romney's dressage horse might shake the schedule up.
[Ann Romney] will return to England from Poland Tuesday to see her horse compete Aug. 2 and 3. Depending on how the horse performs, he could show again Aug. 8 and 9, Ann Romney's spokeswoman, Sarah Haley, said.
That means Ann Romney might not be back in the United States for at least another week.
The candidate is unlikely to announce his running mate - unarguably one of the most important moments of his campaign - without his wife, whom he often refers to as his "sweetheart," by his side.
