Ryan talks about pivotal election night moment

Paul Ryan, after being asked when the candidates knew they were doomed on election night.

"When we saw the final numbers rolling in on Virginia and Ohio.... we thought we had a really good chance of winning. The polling, the data and all the smart people who watch this stuff -- they had a pretty optimistic view on the night, so going into Boston that day, we thought we had a pretty darn good chance of winning. So as you can imagine, it was a bit of a shock."

In the campaign's closing weeks, there was some incredulity over how genuinely confident both campaigns seemed.

One of them, the thinking was, had to be bluffing. Well, it turns out that both were genuinely confident, which is at least a good sign for the body language industry. 

As for 2016?

"Let's just deal with one thing at a time. I've gotta think people are a little sick about presidential speculation after we just finished this presidential campaign."
