Romney's wife drives 'a couple of Cadillacs'

In a speech in Detroit today, Mitt Romney said his wife drove 'a couple of Cadillacs.'

This final note today, in which we say to Mitt Romney's campaign advisers: We feel your pain.

I don't know that you can campaign for president without saying anything, but you have to believe they're wishing it were an option. First, there was that $10,000 bet with Rick Perry in that debate a couple of months ago.

Then today, in a speech in Detroit, this: Romney was extolling the virtues of the American automobile industry, he said he drives a Mustang and a Dodge pickup.

His wife Ann drives Cadillacs. Two of 'em.
