COLBERT: George, see, you're pushing me into being a candidate.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Time is running short.
COLBERT: I'm in an exploratory phase right now. I'm still putting together my exploratory committee. And I'm looking -- would you be willing to be on my exploratory committee?
STEPHANOPOULOS: No, I cannot be on your exploratory committee, nor would I be willing to...
COLBERT: Why can you not be on my exploratory committee?
STEPHANOPOULOS: ...to run for vice president. But who are you looking at for vice president?
COLBERT: Well, I -- George, I certainly -- I'm looking at myself right now. You know, I read The New York Times last week that there are three Stephen Colberts, one of those two other guys might be a good vice presidential candidate. If I'm running, and I'm not...
STEPHANOPOULOS: You have to be born in two different states, according to the Constitution.
COLBERT: Really? Well, I was born in Washington, D.C., which isn't a state at all. So I think I've got it covered all around.
STEPHANOPOULOS: The second question from Facebook comes from Sharon Smith, it reads...
COLBERT: I love that Facebook. That thing is growing.
STEPHANOPOULOS: They are. "How does Mrs. Colbert feel about the possibility of having her husband run for president?"
COLBERT: Mrs. Colbert isn't on the exploratory committee. And, I think she's probably going to find out about it by watching the show today.
So, honey, we might be running for president, sorry about that. I should have told you before I came on air.
STEPHANOPOULOS: What is your guess on how she feels about it?
COLBERT: She would make a fantastic first lady of South Carolina.
STEPHANOPOULOS: OK. Finally, Wanda Renee...
COLBERT: Wanda Renee?
STEPHANOPOULOS: Wanda Renee.
COLBERT: I know Wanda, she's a good woman.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Also on Facebook...
COLBERT: Really? Do you get your questions from anywhere but Facebook?
STEPHANOPOULOS: No, we got a few of them from Facebook, though. "Do you believe the outcome of the 2012 presidential election is based on how much money each candidate can raise?"
COLBERT: No, it's how much speech they can express, because money equals speech. It doesn't matter if the speech comes from money or comes from your mouth.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So you agree with the Supreme Court?
COLBERT: On almost everything. Money equals speech, therefore, the more money you have the more you can speak. That's just -- that just stands to reason. If corporations are people, corporations should be able to speak. That's why I believe in super PACs.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So you believe in super PACs. You believe they're full expression of the First Amendment?
COLBERT: Without a doubt, do you not, George? Do you not believe that some -- are you saying...
STEPHANOPOULOS: I'm asking the questions today, Mr. Colbert.
COLBERT: Well, you answer one of my questions, I'll answer one of yours. Do you believe that corporations are people?
STEPHANOPOULOS: I'm not going to weigh in on that. We're going to have a long campaign here. But I want to know what you think about that.
COLBERT: Really? Corporations are people. You won't weigh in on whether some people are people. That seems kind of racist, George.
STEPHANOPOULOS: I am going to move on because one of your top supporters...
COLBERT: Really, I bet you will.
