Do you want to be Vice-President?

The Hill newspaper asked all 97 Senators who are not running for President the same question, “If you were asked, would you accept an offer to be the VP nominee?” I picked some of the best answers and have quoted them.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.)
“We already have a vice president from Wyoming. So we’ll have to see if Sen. McCain asks me to chair his selection committee. That seems to work well. It certainly seemed to work well for the last guy from Wyoming.”

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.)
“I know already who it will be: the man in charge of the search. There’s no need for me to respond. That’s how you get to be vice president.”

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.)
“The chances of that are so remote that I’m more likely to be hit by an asteroid.”

Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.)
“No. I don’t like going to funerals.”

Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah)
“Of course. Big house, big car, not much to do. Why not?”

Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho)
“I would say ‘No, Hillary.’ ”
