House Speaker Paul Ryan appease to be keeping his future White House options wide open.

In a CNN interview posted Wednesday, Ryan, the party's 2012 vice presidential nominee, was asked if his decision not to get into the race this year meant he's nixed a presidential run in the future as well.

"Well no, but I don't think that far down the road," he said. "I made a decision in this cycle for 2016 not to run for president."

His rejection last week of an 11th hour bid for the party's nomination at a contested convention was emphatic, Politico notes.

"I don't think it's right to have someone parachute in who never ran for the job," he said. "And in my case, I specifically decided not to run for the job, adding that in an open convention, only candidates who campaigned and received votes should be under consideration. I don't know how I can be any clearer than that."
