Former congressman Todd Akin (R-Mo.), in his first interview since his 2012 Senate campaign imploded after his comments about "legitimate rape," says he's not ruling out another run for office.

"It's one of those things that depends on the circumstances really. I don't rule anything out," he told KSDK-TV. "I consider it a bright new future and I'm interested to see what the possibilities are."

Akin also had some sharp words for Karl Rove, who like many Republicans has criticized Akin's 2012 campaign as woefully inept.

"I think I lost one race; he managed to lose about 12 of them in one night," Akin said.

(Worth noting: If Akin had been able to run in more than one race in 2012, there's a good chance he would have lost the other ones too.)
