While Romney wished McCain and Palin well, his friends and advisers say if they fail in the general election, Romney is primed — even anxious — to mount a second bid for the White House.
He left himself some wiggle room Tuesday, saying, “That’s not in my mind; that’s not in my plans.”
Now, Romney can again concentrate on the presidency, even as he buffs a veneer of support for the McCain-Palin ticket with his speech to the Republican National Convention on Wednesday.
Indeed, Romney’s stumping for McCain in recent months has also served to maintain his visibility and future political viability.
Damn, at least wait until the convention’s over. Sheesh.
