Ann Romney is getting a plum platform to show off her smarts while ingratiating herself to the masses.
Mitt Romney's wife will co-host "Good Morning America" on Oct. 10 while the show's veteran anchor Robin Roberts continues to recover from a bone marrow transplant.

"GMA" says it is reaching out to First Lady Michelle Obama to see if she would like to sign on for a similar co-hosting assignment.
