Hilary Rosen: The Democratic consultant was just another talking head on cable TV until she questioned Ann Romney's standing to talk about the economic challenges facing women, saying the GOP candidate's wife had "never worked a day in her life."
Republicans seized on the dismissive comment and even Barack and Michelle Obama hastened to distance themselves from it.
Rosen apologized. Ann Romney was later overheard calling Rosen's comment an "early birthday present."
