Presidential candidate Stephen Colbert gave an interview to Tim Russert this morning on Meet The Press and in typical Colbert fashion, he lays out his agenda and plan to lose the race. Russert questions him, tongue in cheek, on some of the more controversial statements from his new book and talks to him about his now infamous appearance at the 2006 White House Correspondents Dinner, his obsession with Richard Nixon, his one-time goal to be a cult leader, and asks him if he would consider asking Sen. Larry Craig to be his running mate.

Russert: "Would you consider Senator Larry Craig as your running mate?"

Colbert: "I would."

Russert: "Have you had conversations with him?"

Colbert: "Define conversation."

Russert: "Have you spoken to him?"

Colbert: "No."

Russert: "Have you met with him? Have you been in the same room together?"

Colbert: "Yes, and I -- sorry my lawyers telling me to say no more."
