Former Massachusetts governor and two-time presidential candidate Mitt Romney pulled back from a third run for president after determining that he could get out while he’s ahead, according to Yahoo News.
“After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney said in a statement first published on radio host Hugh Hewitt’s website.
“Two weeks ago it would have looked like he got pushed out,” a campaign adviser from the 2012 effort said. Now, Romney left the stage with the most recent opinion polls showing him leading the huge field of potential Republican candidates for president.

It would have been a joke for him to run again. Which is why he was leading in those polls.
Instead of being president, he will have to settle for being “a rich guy.”
I’d take that alternative.
