Ann Romney's horse, Rafalca, could have a major impact on the U.S. presidential election, while dressage is really all about budgeting. (2:29)

VISITING MACHU PICCHU TO REMIND THE PERUVIANS OF JUST WHAT A TINY PEOPLE THEY ARE.

[LAUGHTER]

OF COURSE, MITT ISN'T THE ONLY ROMNEY WOWING THEM ON THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE THIS WEEK.

SO IS REFALCA, THE ROMNEY FAMILY HORSE, WHO IS AT THE LONDON OLYMPICS COMPETING IN DRESSAGE,

WHICH I HAVE DECLARED THE SPORT OF THE SUMMER FOR THOSE WHO USE SUMMER AS A VERB.

NOW, REFALCA IS POISED NOT ONLY TO TAKE THE GOLD, SHE COULD HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT ON THE U.S.

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

>> THE V.P. SELECTION COMES SHORTLY PROBABLY AFTER THE OLYMPICS.

>> MRS. ROMNEY HAS A HORSE COMPETING IN THE OLYMPICS THAT COULD KEEP HER IN LONDON UNTIL

AS LATE AS THE 12th, AND IT'S QUITE LIKELY THERE WILL BE NO ANNOUNCEMENT, AT LEAST UNTIL THEN.

>> Stephen: YES, THERE WILL BE NO V.P. ANNOUNCEMENT UNTIL AFTER REFALCA IS DONE COMPETING.

THAT COULD MEAN ONLY ONE THING -- ROMNEY HAS CHOSEN REFALCA AS HIS RUNNING MATE.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

IT'S AN HISTORIC CHOICE.

FOLKS, THIS IS AN HISTORIC CHOICE, LIKE SARAH PALIN.

LIKE PAILIN, REFELL CA'S FEMALE,

ALSO DOESN'T READ NEWSPAPERS AND HAS COMPLETED THE SAME NUMBER OF TERMS AS GOVERNOR.

GREAT, GREAT VM P.M. PICK.

HER ONE NEGATIVE IS THAT CRITICS CLAIM DRESSAGE IS ELITIST BUT NOT SO SAYS REFALCA'S RIDER AND TRAINER.

HE SAID, "MONEY IS NOT SOMETHING THAT DEFINES DRESSAGE.

IT'S SOMETHING YOU CAN DO WITH A NORMAL BUDGET." YEAH, IT'S REALLY ALL ABOUT BUDGETING.

YOU CUT OUT A COUPLE LATTES A WEEK, BY THE END OF THE MONTH,

YOU'VE GOT YOURSELF A $3 MILLION DUTCH WARM BLOOD.

AND THESE NORMAL BUDGETS ARE WHY DRESSAGE IS FULL OF NORMAL FOLKS, LIKE PRINCE ABDULLAH

ALFUD OF SAUDI ARABIA, THE PRINCESS FROM DENMARK AND DARIA PHILLIPS, GRANDDAUGHTER OF QUEEN

ELIZABETH II.

♪ THESE ARE THE PEOPLE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD ♪ IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD ♪♪

OR ON YOUR MONEY.

WELL, FOLKS, LAST NIGHT REFALCA,

DRESSAGE, GIVE IT UP FOR DRESSA
