South Carolina’s new governor, Nikki Haley, made clear Sunday she wanted no part of the Republican veepstakes. Haley, appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” was unequivocal about sitting out the contest. “I find it silly that it's being talked about, but I will tell you this,” she told host Christiane Amanpour. “The people of South Carolina took a chance on electing me. It is my job and my family's job to prove to them that they made a good decision.

Four GOP hopefuls hit the Sunday talk shows this week, a roster that did not include ostensible front-runner Mitt Romney. The absence was pointedly noted by "Fox News Sunday's" Chris Wallace, who concluded his one-on-one interview with Texas Gov. Rick Perry with a not particularly subtle shot at the former Massachusetts governor. "With Gov. Perry's appearance, we have now interviewed all the major Republican candidates in our 2012 one-on-one series except Mitt Romney. He has not appeared on any Sunday talk show since March of 2010," Wallace said.
