Is Gov. Christie Rethinking the Idea of Becoming a VP Candidate?

Is Governor Chris Christie rethinking the idea of becoming the Vice Presidential running mate of GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney?

During tonight’s Ask the Governor program, Christie said, “No – I have no basis to rethink it,” but he then confirmed a comment he made earlier today when he told a student in Plainsboro that Romney “might be able to convince me.”

The Governor told NJ101.5 News Director Eric Scott this evening the student had asked, “Do I want to be Vice President, and I said I really don’t – he said ‘Well then, why would you take that call?’  and I said I think you owe the nominee of your party the respect to listen, and who knows, maybe he can convince me that it’s the right thing to do – and I think that’s always a live possibility if you respect the person on the other end of the phone – as I respect Governor Romney…but it’s not meaning that I’m rethinking it at all, no.”

Christie has repeatedly stated he is not interested in being a vice presidential candidate, but would discuss the situation with Mitt Romney – who he’s actively campaigning for – if and when the question is raised.
