Boehner Tells Leno Life's Too Good To Be President

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - House Speaker John Boehner says he likes his life too much to run for president.

Making his first appearance Thursday night on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," Boehner twice gave an emphatic "no," then repeated it, when Leno asked if he'd ever seek the nation's highest office.

Boehner told Leno he likes to play golf, cut his own grass, drink red wine and smoke cigarettes, and he's "not giving that up to be the President of the United States."

The line got a round of applause from the Burbank, Calif. audience.

Boehner also got a laugh when he agreed with Leno that GOP infighting might be the worst he's seen, but then downplayed the conflict, saying Republicans in Washington agree on all their goals, and fight only over tactics.
