BETTENDORF, Iowa (AP) _ An anti-war activist has put Republican
presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on the spot, when it comes to his sons' lack of military service.

She asked Romney about the decision by his five adult sons not to enlist in the military. Romney responded that they're showing their support for the country by helping him get elected -- because they think he'd "be a great president."

The question was posed after the former Massachusetts governor gave a speech in Iowa, in which he called for "a surge of support" for U.S. forces in Iraq.

The Illinois woman said she wasn't satisfied with the response.
