Tagg Romney: Mitt Romney didn't want to be president, Mitt's son reveals in Boston Globe interview

Mitt Romney never wanted to be president, according to his son.

"He wanted to be president less than anyone I've met in my life. He had no desire to . . . run," Tagg Romney told the Boston Globe in an interview published Sunday.

Tagg said it was he and his mother, Ann, who convinced Romney to make a run for the office.

If he could have found someone else to take his place . . . he would have been ecstatic to step aside," Tagg said.

Tagg said his father is a very private person who "doesn't love the attention."
