This quote should
put an end to the speculation about whether New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie
(R) is considering a run for president: "I've said I don't want to. I'm not going to," Christie told reporters. "There is zero chance I will...I don't feel like I'm ready to be president. I don't want to run for president. I don't have the fire in the belly to run for president. But, yet, everyone seems to think that I've left the door open a little bit. But I don't -- short of suicide, I don't really know what I'd have to do to convince you people that I'm not running. I'm not running." http://bit.ly/bKgFFm

Coming off his big win on Tuesday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry
(R) is tamping down 2012 speculation -- despite going on a national book tour that included a very awkward stop on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Friday morning. "I have no interest in going to Washington," Perry said, after chastising Joe Scarborough
for not asking him enough questions about his book.
