Ann Romney says Eastwood is ‘a Unique Guy’ Following GOP Convention

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Ann Romney says she appreciates the support Clint Eastwood gave her husband’s presidential bid, even if the actor’s bizarre monologue at the GOP convention isn’t earning rave reviews. Romney tells “CBS This Morning” she didn’t know what to expect when Eastwood came on stage Thursday as a warm up act. Eastwood’s rambling conversation with an empty chair representing an imaginary President Barack Obama drew laughs in the convention hall, but has been widely mocked by critics. Ann Romney was peppered with questions on morning news shows about whether Eastwood’s appearance was a distraction. She says Eastwood is “a unique guy and he did a unique thing last night.” Eastwood’s routine went on twice as long as planners expected, cutting into the hour of prime time coverage for Republicans.
