"I won't even if you make me!!!" Well, he does probably make more cash pimping his books/movies/whatev.

DOVER, DE -- Given the opportunity to work in Mitt Romney’s cabinet, Newt Gingrich says he would pass.

Asked by a radio host inside a small diner whether he would work for a Romney administration if given the opportunity, Gingrich answered “probably not” but “not because I am opposed to Mitt.”

“Look, if the choice does end up being Romney versus Obama, I can be very, very enthusiastic for Romney, that is a huge choice. But I had a very good life doing a lot of fun things,” the former House speaker said. “I am very happy to be an adviser. I did a lot of that in the Bush administration both on health care and national security.”

Romney seems to have all but sealed the nomination – he still has not reached the 1,144 delegate count threshold – but Gingrich says he has more explaining to do.

Once a grifter, always a grifter.

By NBC’s Alex Moe HOCKESSIN, Del. – Marking the first presidential candidate visit to Delaware this cycle, Newt Gingrich criticized President Obama’s comments to Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, as “alarming behavior.”

Monday’s event, held in a state that doesn’t vote for another three weeks, also seemed to signal a new phase in the campaign. Event attendees were allowed to take pictures with the candidate for $50 per photo. Before tonight, supporters took photos with Gingrich for free.

Charging for photos, in addition to news that the campaign canceled a trip to North Carolina, contributes to the narrative that Gingrich is struggling to stay afloat financially.

But, Gingrich continues to vow to stay in the race even until Delaware votes on April 24th.
