He is great at keeping secrets. Romney won't say if he's open to 1-on-1 Iran talks - Election News - KTAR.com DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Republican Mitt Romney on Sunday refused to say if he would be open to one-on-one talks with Iran if elected president. The presidential candidate took time away from debate preparations to officiate the coin toss at a flag football game between reporters and his senior campaign aides. But he did not answer questions about how he would handle talks about the Middle Eastern country's nuclear program, how he was feeling about the Monday night debate with President Barack Obama or about a new poll showing a close race. "I thought you were talking about one-on-one talks with the president, I was about to answer," Romney joked when a reporter assigned to cover his visit to the beach game asked about Iran. He also refused to answer a follow-up question about whether he felt about this week's debate with Obama, which is focused on foreign policy. "Ready for football," Romney said.
