Failed 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said there's "no question" he'd make a better president than Hillary Clinton, but that's not good enough reason to run again in 2016.
"I've spoken at this time and time again," said Romney on Fox News Sunday. "I'm not running. I'm not planning on running. I'm going to be helping the person who takes the banner for us."
Pressing Romney, host Chris Wallace asked, "In your heart, do you still think you’d make the best president of all the people out there?”
“My time has come and gone,” the former Massachusetts governor said, adding, “I had that opportunity. I ran and didn’t win and now it’s time for someone else to pick up the baton.”
But when Wallace asked Romney to compare himself to Hillary Clinton, questioning whether he would make a better president, Romney was quick to answer in the affirmative.
"No question about that in my mind," said Romney.
"The American people may disagree with me," Romney explained, "But, look, you've got to get this economy going. You have to have people who understand what it takes to create jobs and to help people come out of poverty, to help the middle class to have a better and prosperous future. You've got to have that understanding."
