Personal Quote:

[In 2000]: She was a loving, happy, stay-at-home mom, which I think is great, I'm not for every woman having to be out in the workplace. My mother was. I had two children at home and I was working. But I think one who stays home, if she's doing a good job, it is the best job she'll ever have, and the most important. And I think our children need the mothers home. See more »
