Mitt Romney shocked the world—or rather, shocked the handful of people who obsessively follow politics—by toying with the idea of another presidential run. Then, on Friday, he proved a lot of eager pundits wrong by announcing that he wouldn’t run.

Romney’s decision to sit out 2016 is great news for Hillary Clinton, who is now the sole choice for voters in search of an old, out of touch, insanely wealthy, Wall Street-loving candidate with a history of failure.
