Romney: "The Future Is Open"

Governor Romney made it official yesterday evening - he will not be seeking a second gubanatorial term. Whie he did not announce a presidential run, general speculation is that he eventually will. From
Romney, ending months of speculation about his political future, said he will serve out his four-year term, which ends in January 2007. Although he has spent a year positioning himself as a presidential candidate and acknowledged he was testing the presidential waters, the governor yesterday insisted his decision had nothing to do with his national ambitions.

''I'm not going to close any options at this point . . . other things may develop in the future," Romney, 58, told a packed State House press conference broadcast live by Boston television stations. ''I don't know what will happen. The future is open."

''With regards to what happens down the road, we'll let the future take care of itself," Romney said.
Yeah, a lot can happen in 2 1/2 - 3 years - but I'm not willing to bet this is the last we hear from you, Governor. At least I hope not.
