New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are both said to be considering a 2016 GOP presidential run, and Christie says he would have fun with his friend on the campaign trail if both toss their hats in the ring.

"You don't like to run against people who are your friends. You'd rather run against people you don't like. It's easier," Christie told Bob Schieffer in an interview aired Sunday on "Face the Nation."  Schieffer talked to Christie as part of the Peterson Foundation Fiscal Summit in Washington, D.C.

But Christie said he wouldn't refrain from running just because a friend was also in the race, and he suspects Bush wouldn't either.

One positive, Christie said, would be hanging out with Bush because the two are so much alike in beliefs and policy implementation, and Bush is "one of the nicest people I've had a chance to meet in public life."

Many people see Bush and Christie as opposites on that last point.

Schieffer asked the often brash Christie who in the possible candidate field he doesn't like.

Christie laughed, and said, "I don't want to tell someone I don't like them and they turn out not to run. That would be a wasted unlike, wouldn't it."
