Today on Meet The Press, host David Gregory grilled New Jersey governor Chris Christie about, among other things, whether he holds any aspirations to run for president on the Republican ticket in 2012. Christie repeatedly said he does not intend to run in 2012, and emphasized that he is focused foremost on whether to run for re-election for governor in 2013.Not that Christie ever really gave it any serious thought, I'd think he has too much integrity to do so. But if there's one thing Republicans should've learned from Sarah Palin it's that quitting your governor's post midway will not appeal you to independents.
“You wouldn’t be on the ticket at all as VP?” Gregory pressed.
“Can you see me as somebody’s Vice President, David?… I would feel bad for that poor man or woman.”
