While Mitt Romney is launching stiff attacks against President Barack Obama’s policies in Wednesday night’s debate, he’s also making an effort to show his humanity.

At the beginning of his first segment of comments, the Republican nominee said, “I was in Dayton, Ohio, and a woman grabbed my arm, and she said, ‘I've been out of work since May. Can you help me?’"

Romney also brought his popular wife into the mix. “Ann yesterday was at a rally in Denver, and a woman came up to her with a baby in her arms, and said, ‘Ann, my husband has had four jobs in three years, part-time jobs. He's lost his most recent job. And we've now just lost our home. Can you help us?’"

That enabled Romney to return to the policy realm. “The answer is, yes, we can help, but it's going to take a different path, not the one we've been on, not the one the president describes as a top-down, cut taxes for the rich. That's not what I'm going to do,” he said.

When the discussion turned to healthcare, Romney again brought out his soft side, citing people he has met on the campaign trail who are struggling to afford medical care.
