New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is teasing his supporters once again with hints he'd like to be in the White House come January 2013.

Christie, who disappointed many Republicans when he decided in October not to run for president after months of staying on the fence, said Thursday that it would be "presumptuous" for anyone not to consider him as a vice presidential candidate - especially Gov. Mitt Romney, who he's endorsed.

"The fact is if Governor Romney comes to me and wants to talk to me about that, we'll have a full, complete conversation about it," Christie said in an interview with his wife on Fox News.

But staying true to form, Christie said he might turn down the job if it is offered to him.

"I can envision myself saying no, because if I feel like I'm being really effective here, and there's more to do here, then I'm gonna want to stay here," Christie said. "I think if you fast-forward the tape to a year from now, I think it's going to be President-elect Romney and some other Vice President-elect and Chris Christie, the Governor of New Jersey."
