Although Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) has ruled out running for president in 2012, on Sunday he suggested he would be open to running as vice president.

Ryan told local news station FOX6 that he refused to run for president because he has three young children, but would consider running for vice president because the campaign is significantly shorter and less demanding.

“I’m not going to focus on that only because it’s someone else’s decision, so what’s the point of answering that question?” he said. “I’m focused on doing my job right and that’s so far away and it’s out of my control, so I just don’t spend my time worrying about it. I spend my time worrying about my job, which is balancing the budget, getting this debt under control and creating the conditions that will get jobs created in this country.”
