Third time's the charm?
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Sunday that'd he'd be thrilled to see his former ticket-topping partner Mitt Romney make another run at the White House.
In an appearance on CBS' Face the Nation, the former vice presidential candidate gushed when asked if he thought Romney would run again. "I sure wish he would," Ryan said. "He'd make a phenomenal president."
Romney has repeatedly said he will not run in 2016 no matter what, telling one interviewer, "No, no, no no, no," and so on. As for Ryan, he said Sunday he was at least considering a White House bid of his own, but that he had yet to make a decision.- -
