In all seriousness, Romney's post-election path isn't clear. He won't return to the political front line, as John McCain did when he went back to his Senate seat after losing to Obama in 2008. In his concession speech, Romney said that he remained "concerned about America". Is public service part of his future? In what way?And the readers have been very helpful. Some of my favourites:
Romney is not exactly broke, so slinging Viagra shouldn't necessary. He does have connections, though, and broad public support – more than 57 million people voted for him, after all, only 2 million fewer than voted for Obama.
So, Guardian readers... over to you: What should Mitt do now? Retire? Go back into business? Breed horses? Coach Marco Rubio for a possible 2016 run? Tell us in the thread below...
Take a vow of silence.
Open a B&B with Donald Trump
get a bionic arm and fight crime....
In reality he should probably get back to finsihing the Death Star.
Start drinking heavily....and my #1:
- Buy a secret underwater base and try to take over the world (it may be the only way a Republican is going to get into the White House in the near future)My personal suggestion for Mittens?
- Buy an English Premier League Football club
- Go back to his home planet
- Come up with a Paris catwalk collection of Mormon-themed fashion
However, I suspect he'll just go back to the day job as a member of the 1% - it's what he knows about most.
Spend a year sitting on a mountain thinking about why he got fewer votes than Mc Crankypants, then spend the rest of his life giving his money away.Go on over to The Guardian. It's a game anyone can play!
