This is excellent news:

Ann Romney’s Horse Comes in Third in Olympic Qualifying Event
Ann Romney’s dressage trainer Jan Ebeling and the horse they co-own, Rafalca, came in third this weekend at the United States Equestrian Federation National Dressage Championships in Gladstone, N.J. This competition, which will continue next weekend, also serves as an Olympics qualifying event for the U.S. Dressage Team for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. ...

In a Los Angeles Times story last month, Robin Abcarian reported that despite Romney’s relatively late start in dressage Romney won silver and gold medals in 2005 and 2006 at the highest level of competition from the U.S. Dressage Federation and she credits Ebeling with her success in the top tier of amateur dressage.
Hey, maybe doing well in - or merely being in - this category of "sports", almost exclusively practiced by the rich, will bring votes to Romney. If this country's reaction to Great Britain's celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee is any indication, the higher up you are, the more adulation you get. For those thinking that inequality has a grip on the public's mind, how do you explain all the positive coverage of Queen Elizabeth?
