House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Sunday left the door open to becoming his partys vice-presidential candidate.
I just dont know the answer to your question, he said on Fox News Sunday when asked if he would accept a request to be the vice presidential candidate.
It is not a bridge that I have even come close to crossing. Its a decision that somebody else makes in a long time from now, Ryan added about the possibility that the partys eventual presidential nominee might ask him to join the ticket.
Ryan repeatedly emphasized that hes focused on steering his recently introduced budget plan through Congress, but certainly didn't rule out the idea of an eventual VP nod.

Dan Conry just discussed this topic on WISN (Dan is great and is on 2-5pm every Sunday AM 1130).
There was lots of enthusiasm on the radio show for Paul Ryan as a VP selection.
I know people who will vote for you know who IF Ryan is his VP pick.
Getting Ryan in as VP,,,sets him up to be one of the finest presidents history when his chance comes.
Made me feel all warm and fuzzy when Dan and guests were speculating about Ryan as VP.
Yes he is and no one cares about your theories on the matter.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see WI turn red in the November election. The unionistas have awakened a sleeping tiger.
Other than the sermon I heard at church this morning, that is the best news I’ve heard all day my friend. Thank you.
Paul Ryan could end up being James Kirk or end up being Peyton Manning; it’s his call.
Cheney was from Wyoming. Not exactly a lot of people living there. :)
I like it.
listening to wallace and Rep. Paul Ryan!
I have and still really like what he says - besides the fact that he can talk and keeps wallace in line - that is an extra!!!!
The truth is a bitch, ain’t it?
So the Constitution is "theoretical" for you? Why are you here?
"Understand that this is a Constitutional matter. It has nothing to do with the experience, value, or skills of the individuals. Our Constitution simply says that you must meet the Natural Born Citizen requirements or you cannot be President."
So you've only been an "internet shut-in" since 2004? LOL
You either stand for the Constitution, or you don't. Are you new to this NBC issue? Maybe you should set aside your prejudices, or your love for Rubio (I like him too) and try to see this from the Founder's viewpoint.
Many of you have asked about how the Minor v. Happersett definition of natural born citizen effects the eligibility of Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio to be President. First, let me reiterate that the Constitution should be applied to everyone equally. So, if Mitt, Marco, or anyone else meets the definition of Natural Born Citizen, they meet the minimum Constitutional qualifications to serve as President. If they dont, they dont.
The definition of Natural Born Citizen, as defined by the Supreme Court, has two elements: 1) you must be born in the U.S.; 2) both of your parents must be citizens of the U.S. at the time of your birth. If both of these elements are fulfilled, you are a Natural Born Citizen. Assuming Mitt was born in the U.S. and both of his parents were U.S. citizens at that time, then he is a NBC. Ive been told, but dont know for sure, that Marco was born here, but that his parents didnt naturalize until Marco was 14 years old. If this is true, then Marco Rubio can never be a Natural Born Citizen. He can be a Senator, his children could be President, but Marco doesnt meet the minimum Constitutional qualifications to be President. This means that he cant be VP either.
Understand that this is a Constitutional matter. It has nothing to do with the experience, value, or skills of the individuals. Our Constitution simply says that you must meet the Natural Born Citizen requirements or you cannot be President.
Your interpretation of it is, chief. Do yourself a big favor and stick to Obama's eligibility questions and stop doing DNC grunt work.
