Obama and Romney Go Head-to-Head in Mother's Day Video Showdown

Mother's Day is nothing if not an opportunity for politicians to pander to the lady vote, and this year the presidential candidates both took a stab at appealing to women. Obama, who you may remember believes that women are a varied and smart group, spent some time remembering all of the women who shaped him and talking about how Michelle has managed to produce two daughters that he calls "magical."

Romney's campaign, on the other hand, opted to focus on the only woman Mitt Romney seems to have ever met: his wife Ann. The video is Happy Mother's Day message from all the Romney sons, which is kind of sweet, but seems only to be designed to humanize Ann—who isn't the Romney parent who really needs humanizing, but whatever!—rather than talk about the contributions of moms everywhere.
