ANDREA MITCHELL (ANCHOR): Now, are some of us completely out of line to think, whoa, you know, we've lost the whole Republican Senate has lost Bob Corker, they've lost Jeff Flake. Ron -- let's see, Alexander -- Lamar Alexander is now a lame duck if you will, not running for re-election, but in the current Senate, there are so few Republican critics willing to stand up. And here you have Mitt Romney, who agrees with the president on a lot of issues on domestic policy, but disagrees with his character, with his demeanor, with his approach, you know, to public life in general. Is this the opening round of a potential 2020 run?
