(REALCLEARPOLITICS) — “He might be able to convince me. He’s a convincing guy, but I really love this job. I really want to stay in this job,” NJ Gov. Chris Christie (R) said to a group of students today.

“Do I really look like the vice presidential type? You know? Sitting behind him at the State of the Union going (clapping). I don’t think that’s me. I think it’s unlikely,” Christie said.

“But if he called and asked, of course I would talk to him about it. I like Governor Romney a lot. I was one of his earliest supporters, I worked really hard for him to get the nomination and I’m thrilled that he’s got it. I hope that he gets elected president. But, being Vice President is a whole different story,” he said.
