It wasn't the speech he hoped to give during inauguration week in Washington, but Mitt Romney spoke nonetheless today to a closed-door session of donors and campaign bigwigs. Politico has the quote getting the most play:

That doesn't mean he's running again; in fact he made clear he's not, according to those present.

He also pledged to start speaking out again on national matters. (Read more Mitt Romney stories.)
