Mitt Romney is running against Al Gore for "Most Improved Public Persona After Losing The Race For President."
2012 Mitt Romney was so stiff and wooden that Rick Santorum's sweater vest seemed jaunty and hip on stage next to him. 2015 Mitt Romney, however, seems like a funny dad that most of us would enjoy having a root beer with. Since his "47 percent" nadir, Mitt has turned into a regular Rom-Com. Photos of him doing normal things like eating ice cream went viral after he left, he gamely boxed with Evander Holyfield for charity, he let Jimmy Fallon mock/impersonate him, and he's just generally been a good sport about being a loser. Which makes him perfect to deliver the most memorable slogan I've ever heard leave his mouth:
"I was told there'd be pancakes."
