Last night, Mitt Romney hosted a campaign "reunion" in Houston.

More than 1,200 people attended -- many of whom flew into town to attend  -- leading me to believe that they believe Romney has a future. 

The event was for fun and did not include official strategic meetings, though staff mingled and, no doubt, networked.

The festivities included a VIP reception (Robert Masbacher spoke at the reception) and then a Beach Boys concert.  Ann and Mitt actually danced, and at one point came up on stage and sang Barbara Ann (not the "bomb Iran" version).

Attendees included Romney top-donors and staff.  A top campaign finance chair from Houston hosted the event.

There was also a separate breakfast fundraiser this morning for McCain.  The message was simple:  Support McCain because you don't want Obama for president.

Regarding "veep' possibilities, one source told me:  "I came away with a clear impression that nobody on team Romney are under the illusion they are the favorite son of John McCain."
