"Are we really conceding?"

According to David Muir, that's what Ann Romney asked as election night turned bleak.

In the days after defeat, a source close to Mrs. Romney said she described the moment she walked onto that stage on election night as 'surreal.' The source adding Mrs. Romney wondered to herself, 'Are we really conceding?'

In fact, it was Mrs. Romney who remained most optimistic as returns started pouring in. She was playing with her grandchildren and received updates from others whose eyes were trained on the television screen.
