The political chattering class is all atwitter about Chris Christie. Will he or won’t he? He has said that under no uncertain terms he won’t run for president. Yet he’s still flirting with those who want him to throw his hat in the ring. He’s sort of the Sarah Palin of New Jersey.
With the right’s unhappiness about the current crop of candidates Christie is the new shiny thing. Remember Michele Bachmann? Rick Perry?
Christie may run, but it’s a long shot that he’d win the nomination. His record is way, way too far left for the Tea Party activists who seem to be running the show. And he’s a Catholic.
