Washington (CNN) –Members of the Best Political Team on Television – and some of the politicians they "cover" told us what their New Year's resolutions are for 2010, including "relaxing more" and texting less.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney : "I need to relax more. I'm going to start by loosening my tie before I got to bed."
New York Gov. David Paterson: "My wish for this New Year is that people in government would realize that cutting now is less damaging than cutting later. Families are forced to make difficult decisions every day, and especially during this time of the year as families must decide between toys for the holidays and paying the rent. The responsible thing to do is pay the rent, and I believe the public understands this. But some people in government are afraid to look the public in the eye and say these are the tough choices we have to make."
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger:"You know, to me, I think jobs, jobs, jobs. That's the only thing that I can think of, because to me - you know, you can talk about all the details in the world but the people in California need jobs."
National Correspondent Jessica Yellin: "My resolution next year: more talking less texting."
Senior Political Analyst Gloria Borger: "One day this year I want to wake up this year earlier than Mike Allen."
CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer: "I resolve to be a better friend by staying in closer touch with my friends - and not just by email or Twitter - but by actually talking to them and even seeing them in person. Can you imagine!"
CNN Senior White House Correspondent Ed Henry: "The first year of the Obama administration was too busy to take my son and Dad for a pilgrimage to the new Yankee Stadium, but we're going to get it done in 2010, especially since we're World Champs again.".
National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn: "To try to stop any more Washington takeovers."
