NJ Gov Christie: I Don't Want to Be VP (That's Only No. 2)

Wednesday, 20 Oct 2010 05:54 PM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie flatly rejects the very idea being the GOP’s vice-presidential candidate in 2012, although some Republicans believe he’d be ideal for it. And, in a way, his rejection just possibly could be interpreted as, “Why settle for less” than being president (just not in 2012)? Christie told MSNBC he has no interest in the No. 2 spot, according to a Politico report.

Chris Christie, vice president, 2012, Republican"Can you see me as somebody's vice president? I mean, who would be that poor guy?" he asked rhetorically. "You know, I just don't think that my personality is necessarily suited to being No. 2.”

That, of course, at least hints that he’d be interested in being top dog. Christie topped the inaugural tea party presidential straw poll for 2012 during the weekend. But he has said before that he won’t run in 2012 and reiterated there’s “no way” on MSNBC.

But his wife, Mary Pat, who also appeared on MSNBC, obviously thinks her husband would do well in the Oval Office. Asked whether he’d make a good president, she said, "Oh, absolutely."
