Although Mitt Romney remains tight-lipped about his future, many predict he is preparing for the political wilderness.

He gave noclue as to his long-term plans when he conceded defeat but he did plea for an end tobipartisan bickering among government leaders.

“The nation as you know is at a critical point. At a
time like this we can’t risk partisan bickering and political posturing. Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people’s work. And
we citizens also have to rise to the occasion,” said the former Republican presidential candidate.

This was Romney’s second unsuccessful bid for theWhite House. Even though he is one of the richest people to ever run for the presidency, he may not now have enough political capital left to convince his fellow conservatives that he can mount another challenge in four years.
