The rumor du jour is that he’s going to become a Fox News contributor. Mediaite has that story, based on an exchange between Fox News anchor Chris Wallace and "Fox & Friends" host Brian Kilmeade. On the latter’s radio show, Mr. Wallace said he knows what’s up next for the Mittster. Mr. Kilmeade then guessed “Fox News contributor,” causing Wallace to get flustered and clam up.
“After a short pause and exactly one hem and one haw, Wallace [replied], ‘We’re not playing 20 questions here my friend!,” Mediate’s Tommy Christopher reports.
Romney could also announce some sort of foundation/fundraising group that will keep a national office in D.C. and give him a platform from which to plot a comeback. Not for himself, necessarily. (Can somebody fan Mr. Rove? He looks faint.) But the Romney name could use a little political refurbishment if his son Tagg wants to run for office. Remember, Tagg Romney was briefly mentioned as a possible GOP entry in the upcoming Senate special election in Massachusetts. Tagg didn’t shut the door on a political career when he said “no,” and at least one other Romney son, Josh, has expressed an interest in entering politics in Utah.
