(CNN) - Forget about speculating about the 2012 field. Maybe it's time to get working on 2016.
First, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush replied "never say never" when asked by the National Review if he'd consider a presidential bid five years from now.
Now New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is giving a similar shrug-of-the-shoulders answer to his presidential ambitions.
"Well, who knows? That's, what, five years from now? And who knows what life is going to be like five years from now?" he told Fox Business Network Thursday.
Of course, if a Republican wins in 2012, all this speculation will be for naught, assuming that Republican runs for reelection. So, yeah, it's too early.
