Starting Lineup: Pelosi's Lead Balloon

Christie's Conundrum: 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." Plus, Perry Pivots: 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. White House Watch: Pres. Obama leaves for Mumbai, India, on Friday. Obama is going on a 10-day trip through India, Indonesia, South Korea and Japan.
