Ron Paul: No decision yet on 2012 presidential bid

Texas congressman and former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul says he hasn't ruled out running for president again but he's not on the verge of making a decision.

Paul's son, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, said Thursday that there's a 50-50 chance one of them will run for president. A few hours later in New Hampshire, Ron Paul told reporters that he and Rand have never discussed whether his son should run.

Paul spoke to a large, enthusiastic crowd at the University of New Hampshire,

He finished fifth in the 2008 primary with less than 8 percent of the vote. In January, he came in second place in a New Hampshire GOP straw poll, with 11 percent.
