Schieffer: Sources Say Romney May Run Again In 2016 If Jeb Bush Doesn't

It seems Mitt Romney may be hoping that the third time is a charm.

Lord help us. It seems Mittens may not have given up on his presidential dreams just yet: Bob Schieffer: Romney may consider 2016 run if Jeb Bush doesn’t:

Mitt Romney has said time and time again that he has no interest in running for president a third time.

But, on Sunday morning, CBS' Bob Schieffer said not to write off the idea of a 2016 campaign by Romney so quickly.

"I have a source that told me that if Jeb Bush decides not to run, that Mitt Romney may actually try it again," Schieffer said.

During a political panel discussion, the "Face the Nation" host said that he has been told that Romney will consider seeking the Republican nomination for the presidency in 2016 if former Florida governor Jeb Bush chooses to sit the race out.

As his guest Bobby Ghosh pointed out, Romney's not going to make it through another primary race without running way to the right again, so forget any hopes of him running as a moderate this time around and potentially helping his party with independent voters.
