This is getting very interesting.
Let's go back to the night when Obama won his second term.
In Concession Speech Surprise, Romney Kicks Off 2016 Campaign
November 6, 2012
“I would like to congratulate Pres. Obama on his victory tonight and pledge that, even in defeat, I will do everything I can to help get this country moving again,” said Romney, addressing a crowd gathered for his election night rally in Boston’s downtown convention center.
“And I think the best way to do that is to announce my candidacy to be the next president of the United States of America! Woo hoo! 2016, here we come!”
“I’m assuming the 2016 presidential election will be the most important election of our lifetime,” said Romney, completely unaware of future circumstances yet certain that he is the man for them.
“We’ll probably need a change from wherever we will be in four years and I promise to be the opposite of whatever that is. We won’t be able to afford four years of whomever my opponent will be and whatever positions he or she might have.”

Mitt Romney for president in 2016?

Far from being excommunicated by Republicans after his loss to President Obama, 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is enjoying a brand resurgence of late, drawing several potential 2016 candidates to his "ideas summit" this weekend in Utah and even earning some 2016 speculation himself.
"He would be a giant in a field of midgets," added Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat who's weighing a 2016 bid himself.
Romney has not entertained speculation that he could mount another bid, saying he's only interested in putting his stamp on the party going forward and positioning Republicans to win national elections.
"The unavailable is always the most attractive, right?" he said, according to The Associated Press. "That goes in dating as well."

So after Romney lost to Obama he said he would run again.
Then he said he wouldn't run again.
Now he's playing hard to get.
I am going to make a prediction.
Mitt Romney is going to run for president again, and Rand Paul will be his running mate.
