(Newser) – Netflix released the trailer today for its Mitt Romney documentary airing next month, and "we get a glimpse of the candidate his aides wish the public had gotten to see more," observes Emma Roller at Slate. That is: funny, droll, emotional, and human. It opens with a shot from election night as Romney checks his phone. "I can't believe you're going to lose," says one of his sons. "What do you think you say in a concession speech?" Romney asks. Then he breaks the tension: "By the way, does someone have the number for the president? I hadn't thought about that," he says while laughing. The trailer also shows Romney referring to himself dryly as the "flipping Mormon" and ironing a shirt he's wearing at the time. MITT, directed by family friend Greg Whiteley, debuts on Jan. 24, notes Business Insider.
