President Jon Stewart? Sen. Bill O'Reilly? Probably not gonna happen

At a press conference following the match-up, ITK asked whether either TV host would consider duking it out in a political race.

“Listen, I have pictures from my youth that I keep in a shoebox that would preclude me from working at the post office,” cracked Stewart. “Apparently they do background checks, so I think I’m probably out.”

When ITK pointed out that several online petitions are calling on him to make a run for the White House, Stewart said to chuckles from the throng of reporters, “There are petitions for a good many things in this country. Doesn’t mean they are all good ideas.”

The “O’Reilly Factor” host said simply, “Not me. Nope. No interest in it.”
