You know Jane Portman, Karen Kasich and Janna Ryan, they operate an awful lot of the time in the shadows. It’s not easy to be a spouse of an elected official. You know they’re at home doing the laundry and doing so many things, while we’re up here on the stage getting a little bit of the applause, right? They don’t often share in it. And it is hard for the spouse to hear the criticism and to put up with the travel schedule and to have to be at home taking care of the kids. And where’s the politician? Out on the road. They’re heroes. These spouses are heroes.
