Mitt Romney may be making noises about a third run for the White House, but his 2012 running mate has told NBC that he doesn’t have his eyes on the presidency (in 2016, that is).

Ryan says he’s at peace with his decision. How does everyone else feel?

“Wonk” Ryan will be kept busy as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.
