Hewitt then pressed Romney, asking him if he would change his mind if "circumstances change."

"I’m not going there, Hugh. I know you’re going to press, but you know, this is something we gave a lot of thought to when early on I decided we’re not going to be running this time. And again, we said look, I had the chance of running. I didn’t win. Someone else has a better chance than I do," Romney responded. "And that’s what we believe, and that’s why I’m not running. And you know, circumstances can change, but I’m just not going to let my head go there."
