Following his rally yesterday which was attended by upwards of 300,000 people, Glenn Beck went on “FOX News Sunday” with Chris Wallace. Wallace asked if that kind of massive turnout could translate into a political following leading to the White House:

Wallace: I got to tell you, the blog traffic right now is a Beck-Palin national ticket in 2012.

Beck: Not a chance. I don’t know what Sarah is doing. I hope to be on vacation. I have no desire to be president of the united states. Zero desire. I don’t think that I would be electable. And there are far too many people that are far smarter than me to be president. I’d like to find one with some honor and integrity. I haven’t seen them yet. They’ll show up.

Wallace: But when you’ve got hundreds of thousands of people showing up to see you, Glenn, that’s something. I mean that is, that’s worth something. I don’t mean personally to you. But that’s people putting their trust in you.

Beck: Well, I mean, if that’s the case, we should either elect Billy Graham or Paul McCartney.

Wallace: Well you don’t sing as well as one of them.

Poll: Did you watch Beck’s rally on TV?
