In a preview of the Romneys’ appearance on Fox News Sunday, their first post-defeat interview, Ann Romney says going from speaking before massive crowds to puttering around your mansion is an “adjustment,” but they’re used to it from intermittently serving as church leaders. Plus, “the good news is fortunately we like each other.” Mitt Romney added, “We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs. But the ride ends. And then you get off. And it’s not like, oh, can’t we be on a roller coaster the rest of our life? It’s like, no, the ride’s over.” And thankfully, Barack Obama can’t keep Romney off every rollercoaster.
Thanksgiving, Christmas and then maybe a few weeks into January — that’s when you really gotta sit down, talk to your advisers and say, ‘Look, do I have a chance?’ I think I know why I would want to run. I think I know what I think this country should do and what I would do. But I just don’t know whether it’s possible.
