Getting out of a job before getting out of a job

I'm an admin in a big corporate firm, but I'm secretly planning to hunt for a new job in a couple weeks. I've just been asked to take on new responsibilities here. Can I get out of this, and if so, how?

The new US-head-of-something-or-other is coming to our office and the business manager has asked if I can take him on as one of the guys I take care of. I'm loath to do so, because with any luck I'll be out of here in a couple months and that would suck for him. But I don't want to tip my hand about the search.
I could claim it's because the new person they gave me to handle two months ago (the GLOBAL-head-of-something-or-other) is keeping me plenty busy (which is also true), but I don't know if this will look bad. My main boss hasn't said anything about this and may be totally unaware she's approaching me.
