During an appearance on Hugh Hewitt's nationally syndicated radio program Tuesday, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said that "circumstances can change," but that he's not running for president for a third time.

"Circumstances can change, but I'm just not going to let my head go there," Romney said, quoting the line, "You're telling me I have a chance?" from the movie "Dumb and Dumber." His chances of running again, he said, are "one of a million."

"Let's say all the guys that were running all came together and said, 'Hey, we've decided we can't do it, you must do it.' That's the one of a million we're thinking about," Romney told Hewitt.
