‘The Ride’s Over’

Since that cold night in Boston, Mitt Romney has mostly been at his home in La Jolla, Calif. He’s spent time with family, and he’s made sporadic trips to the local Costco. But now, nearly four months later, he’s quietly reappearing on the national scene. In a recent interview with Fox News, he talked about the transition to a kind of anonymity. “We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs. But the ride ends,” he said. “And then you get off. And it’s not like, oh, can’t we be on a roller coaster the rest of our life? It’s like, no, the ride’s over.”

Last month, NRO broke the news that Romney will make his first post-election speech on March 15 at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
