Democratic strategist James Carville believes two-time presidential candidate Mitt Romney will go for a third try in 2016, even though the 2012 GOP nominee has said he won't seek the nation's top office again.

"He's run for president twice. I once noted that running for president was like having sex: No one did it once and forgot about it," Carville said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor."

Romney said on Tuesday's Hugh Hewitt radio show that "circumstances can change," and put him back in the field. He far outpaced other names in a recent poll of Republicans in Iowa.

"We know he wants to be president; he's run twice," Carville said, adding that 2014 has been a bad year for many expecting to toss their hats in the GOP ring. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has faced the "Bridge-gate" scandal, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry recently was indicted on charges that he misused his office in a case that even most Democrats see as political targeting.

"A lot of people who looked promising have sort of faded," Carville said. "Romney would be a classic Republican nominee. They always tend to go with the old, experienced white guy. And he's the old, experienced white guy right now."
