R.T. on Fox TV: Pawlenty has no chance against Obama

On a Fox Business Network show this morning, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak was discussing the unemployment rate when host Alexis Glick asked about Minnesota politics:

ALEXIS: Mayor Rybak, I just have to ask you the last question -- are you going to run for governor?

RYBAK: (Stumbles slightly) Well I ... We'll figure that out tomorrow, but I want to say ...

ALEXIS: (Interrupts/laughs) You'll figure it out tomorrow? The governor of your state is saying that he's going to run ... he's going to run for the White House.

RYBAK: Well I, he's going to get his butt kicked by Barack Obama but that's another thing.
