According to Ann Romney, her husband is considering picking a woman as his running mate.

Ann Romney says in an interview, "We've been looking at that and I love that option as well."

She tells CBS News she thinks the person selected for the No. 2 spot should be "someone that obviously can do the job but will be able to carry through with some of the other responsibilities."

Kelly Ayotte? Susana Martinez? Cathy McMorris Rodgers? Well, of course – we all know it’s a possibility, but after the kerfuffle over whether or not Marco Rubio is actually being vetted, don’t forget Mitt Romney told Sean Hannity this:

Mitt Romney: “I get a kick out of some of the speculation that goes on. I’m not going to comment on the process of course. But I can tell you this: only Beth Myers and I know who is being vetted.”

Hannity: “Does that mean Ann Romney doesn’t know?”

Romney: “Even Ann doesn’t know. We talk about the possible people that I might select. But in terms of actually who is being vetted, that is something only two people know. And Beth Myers doesn’t talk.”

Hannity:“Is there a shortlist?”

Romney: “There are a number of people who are being vetted and that is obviously the group we are considering most seriously.”

So, what Ann revealed is, well, not very telling at all it seems.
