"I will tell you what I'm doing when I have a clue [myself]," Snow told his radio audience. "That does not happen to describe my state of mind right now. I don't have a clue so I'm not going to give you any news scoops."

Snow didn't deny a report that he had talked with the White House about the job and noted that if he decided to accept, they would make the announcement first.

The former speechwriter for Bush 41 weighed the pros and cons on the air.

"The most attractive thing about an offer from the White House at a time like this is not the glory of being treated like a piñata by Helen Thomas, but instead, you've got to put your money where your mouth is."
