Ann Romney didn't have much of a say about that red, belted Oscar de la Renta dress she wore for her speech at the Republican National Convention last night, according to Politico. "Well, frankly, I didn't realize that [Romney's campaign manager] Stuart had to weigh in on this — or my husband," she said. "It was going to be like my wedding night; I wasn't going to let him know what I was going to wear. But now they have opinions." [Politico]
