Boehner: Life’s Too Good To Run For President

BURBANK, Calif. (January 24, 2014) Making his first appearance Thursday night on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," U.S. House Speaker John Boehner twice gave an emphatic "no," then repeated it, when Leno asked if he'd ever seek the presidency.

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 response 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.
