Christie on being VP: Romney's 'a convincing guy'

Christie, who has repeatedly said he isn't interested in being the vice president, said if the presumptive nominee called and asked him to consider the post, he would listen.

"He might be able to convince me. He's a convincing guy," Christie told an AP History class in Plainsboro, N.J., according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Matt Katz. Christie said it was highly unlikely he would be the best person for a job that involves playing backup. He jokingly asked the class whether they could see him sitting behind the president at the State of the Union, clapping and not talking.

"I like Gov. 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 and I hope he's elected president," Christie said. "But being VP is a whole different story."
