Ann Romney on comfort food and another campaign

WASHINGTON — Nearly a year after her husband lost his bid for the White House, Ann Romney doesn’t rule out the idea there could be another campaign in her future.

Might Mitt Romney run for office again?

“I don’t know,” his wife of 44 years told USA TODAY’s “Capital Download,” adding, “I certainly don’t believe so,” but not shutting the door entirely. “It would have to be an extraordinary experience for us to have to do that again.”

Then there’s son Josh, who has considered running for office in Utah.

“I honestly could see Josh, at some point in his life” enter what is in some ways the family business. (His father was governor of Massachusetts, his grandfather governor of Michigan, and both were contenders for the presidency.) However, “I would caution my sons, at least, not to be involved in politics when your children are really young, and his children are,” she said. “The advice his mother gives is: Not now. Maybe later.”

When and if he does run, she said, she’ll be out there campaigning for him, “you bet.” Josh, 38, one of five brothers, is a real estate developer in Salt Lake City.

Ann Romney, 64, is on the road again promoting her new book, The Romney Family Table: Sharing Home-Cooked Recipes and Favorite Traditions, published Tuesday by Shadow Mountain. The glossy, 224-page book features family stories and more than 100 recipes for family favorites from monkey bread to peppered pork chops.

Not to mention the fluffernutter sandwich, consisting of two slices of white bread, peanut butter and Fluff, a sticky, nutrition-free confection of whipped marshmallows. “Mayor Bloomberg probably has Fluff high on his list of substances to be banned in New York City,” she writes in the book, “which, for me, would be an added incentive to keep it around.”

“These are family friendly,” she said in the interview. “They’re comfort food.”

She includes her mother’s recipe for buttermilk pancakes, a lifelong favorite that she made the morning after Mitt Romney conceded the 2012 election to President Obama. She put extra pancakes on paper plates that her husband ferried outside to the Secret Service agents who were packing up to leave.

Adjusting to life after the campaign has been challenging at times, she acknowledged. “It’s a huge adjustment,” she said. “Any time you come off anything that’s that frenetic, that just driven and passionate and you feel so strongly about, it’s hard to step back.”

They have tried to go back to the “very typical, normal life” they had before the campaign.

Down the road, she hopes to write another book, this time about dealing with adversity, including her own battle with multiple sclerosis. “I’ve had breast cancer; I’ve had MS; I’ve had Hepatitis B,” she said. “I mean, I’ve had a lot of health issues where I’ve been very sick. And sometimes in those darkest, darkest moments sometimes you think your life will never have sunshine in it again.

“I want people to know that even in your darkest hours, there’s hope.”
