Mitt Romney's First Post-Election Interview Is an Emotional Roller Coaster (Metaphor)

Mitt and Ann Romney sat down with Fox News' Chris Wallace for their first post-election interview, which will air in full this Sunday. The first excerpt, embedded below, suggests it won't be the hardest-hitting interview you've ever seen. Here's Mitt answering a question about what it was like once the campaign was over (which, in Wallace's words, happened "in a flash"):

"We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs. But the ride ends. And then you get off. And it's not like, oh, can't we be on a roller coaster the rest of our life? It's like, no, the ride's over."
