Ann Romney on the Etch-A-Sketch slip-up: "Obviously he was talking about how we're going to change focus...not Mitt changing positions"

In the aftermath of Mitt Romney's impressive victory in the Illinois primary, tonight Piers Morgan welcomes his wife Ann Romney for a live, exclusive interview.

Celebrating her 43rd wedding anniversary to the former Massachusetts governor, Mrs. Romney addresses the recent drama surrounding adviser Eric Fehrnstrom's Etch-A-Sketch comment:

"Obviously he was talking about how we're going to change focus, and we're going to change what we're going to do in the organizational sense of changing. Not Mitt changing positions."

Showing her lighter side, Romney later laughs at host Piers Morgan's suggestion that Fehrnstrom be forced to craft his apology on the device 100 times, much like an ill-behaved schoolchild and a blackboard:

"I think that's a great idea Piers, we'll have him do that."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Mrs. Romney details life under the media microscope, and distractions that arise on the campaign trail.

    I really enjoyed the interview you had with Mrs. Romney. I have have been the lone Romney supporter since 2008. I find their courtship so touching, (like Elvis without the drama) They have such a beautiful family and I wish them all the luck.

    Piers Morgan is a smart and entertaining man. Some of his interviews, as tonight's with Howard Schultz are deft and enlightening. But Morgan should stop being the social critic of average Americans. As the dubious former Editor of the scandal ridden UK's Daily Mail, he is too often 'shocked, shocked' by us. Tonight it was the Miami tragedy about which he offered such glib comments as 'people who have guns shouldn't have them' and 'maybe it's something to do with the South.' Morgan knows nothing of the reality and challenge of living as a law-abiding citizen in a large US city. He should limit his commentary to what he understands – the rich and famous.

    I like Piers but I find it quite irritating every time he mentions that he is not American, that he is Brit. I am a naturalized American and I think that it is quite pretentious of Piers to constantly remind us that he is not American. I say, let's start by giving Piers's job to an American – I am sure we have very qualified Americans for his job.

      We have so many Americas looking for jobs. Let's keep our jobs in America why get people from China or England right Pierce?
      Will the Romnys be sending there children to figh wars because Israil wants them to ?
      Love America that's all we have.
