"There's a big buzz about you perhaps running for office again as a VP candidate with Ron Paul, who I know you admire," said Pat Farnack.

Ventura replied, "I did say I would give it serious consideration. I didn't say I would do it. The thing you gotta judge me by is my hair. If the hair gets cut off... Ironically I couldn't run now because I'm bald on top but I have hair that falls down to my shoulders. Isn't that amazing that you couldn't run looking like I look like right now?"

"It's not stopping Donald Trump," said Farnack.

"He ought to shave his head. I say that seriously because then his hair will no longer be an issue," responded Ventura.

"So, when will you make a decision do you think?" asked Farnack.

"The ball is now in his court. Then again we might have to flip a coin. Maybe I want to be President and he's VP," said Ventura of Paul.

Trump has recently been testing the Presidential waters fanning the flames of the controversial "birther" movement.

New Yorkers who spoke with 1010 WINS' John Montone had dissenting opinions on whether Trump would make a solid candidate for the highest office in the land.

"I think it's a great idea and we need a change. Let a businessman run this country," one man said.

"Donald Trump is full of hot air.  It's always something to get himself in the news -- nothing special.  I wouldn't vote for him," another man said.
