Was Romney Talking about Nikki Haley ?

Last week Mitt Romney issued a statement that he would not seek the nomination for President in 2016. In that statement made the following peculiar statement:

... I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee. In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.

Many have perceived the comment to be a swipe at Jeb Bush. Perhaps it is.

I believe it's possible, however, that he may be hinting that a  plan to help organize a campaign for a lessor known candidate. I'm going to speculate that it might be South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley. The two have a bit of a history, and her endorsement in the South Carolina primary went a long way to diminish Newt Gingrich - who was the "Anti-Romney" candidate of the moment - at the time.

Honestly, I'm a bit surprised that her name hasn't been mentioned more frequently with respect to the 2016 nomination - especially since Hillary Clinton is the presumed Democrat nominee.

  You have to admit - she looks good by comparison....
