Chris Christie On Running For President: Not Gonna Happen
“Not going to happen. I want to be Governor of New Jersey. I ran for Governor of New Jersey. I’m not Woodrow Wilson. You have to be in your gut and in your heart ready to President if you decide to run for that. I simply do not have the desire to do it, nor do I think I’m ready.”
On some level it is refreshing to hear a politician who doesn’t have never-ending ambition and recognizes their limitations. It’s rather rare for the profession, after all.
Christie also does not seem to be interested in the Vice-Presidency:
“Is there anybody around here who thinks I could be a number two to anybody? It’d be kind of hard. It’d be tough for me to be number two to anybody. Now is the time for me to focus on being Governor. While I am flattered by all this, I really am. On the other hand, I know who I am.”
