NY Times why is the “normal, average” life of the speaker’s wife considered news?

New York Times headline: “Speaker’s Wife Emphasizes ‘Normal, Average’ Life”

The New York Times big news flash today was that Mrs. John Boehner was a totally average, normal, nothing special, kind of a gal.

I rhetorically ask you NYTimes: Why is this news?

I’m sure there are plenty of other women out there who are not totally average, normal, nothing special and may I add boring kind of gals.  How about a few headlines about them?
