Newt Gingrich gives himself 1000-to-1 odds of being chosen as Trump’s running mate

Donald Trump has tapped Dr. Ben Carson to head up the search effort for a running mate — a job that traditionally requires more of a proctologist than a brain surgeon, but we’ll see how it goes. Besides, this year, the “rules” are totally out the window.

If you remember what happened after George W. Bush had Dick Cheney head up vetting of potential VPs, the smart money might be on Ben Carson ending up as The Donald’s veep. But the way this election’s playing out, Trump’s running mate could range anywhere from Bernie Sanders to Omarosa.

Another name in the mix is Newt Gingrich, who has set his own odds:

The former GOP speaker told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren Wednesday that he was not actively seeking the vice presidential slot despite political pundits’ talk he may be considered for the job since Trump wants a politician on his ticket.

“Look, I’m not seeking it. I doubt — I think it’s a 1000 to 1 against it, but I think you have to pay attention if a potential president of the United States talks to you,” Gingrich said.

In other words:

Also, I’m not saying Chris Christie is expecting a call from Trump, but word is he’s changed his Springsteen cell phone ringtone from “Downbound Train” to “Born to Run.”
