Another Massachusetts Governor says He's Not joining the Obama Administration

This article is more than 12 years old.

I don't know where this is coming from...but at least three (the Christian Science Monitor, Time, and the Atlantic) national media outlets are suggesting that President Obama consider former Governor Mitt Romney as his health care czar. There are lots of reasons this seems an unlikely choice: Romney may want to run against Obama in 2012, Romney's position on abortion and the fact that his work on health coverage in Massachusetts didn't help his campaign. A Romney spokesman says "Mitt Romney is not seeking a job in the Obama administration, and it's highly unlikely any such job would be offered." Are we missing something?
