Alistair Carmichael doesn't quite rule out a leadership bid

BBC News has a report headlined:

Alistair Carmichael rules out Lib Dem leadership bid

But when you read Alistair's quote below it, you can detect a little wriggle room if you want to:
"I have got a family that still includes school age children. And the commitment that it takes to be party leader in modern politics is enormous. 
"My family already miss out on a lot just by virtue of the fact that I'm an MP and I'm a minister and I'm away from home every week . 
"At least I feel that they miss out on a lot, they might feel differently."
So perhaps there was something in Lord Bonkers' tip after all?

And his other ground for ruling out leadership ambitions is that he represents Jo Grimond's old constituency!
