  •  Somewhere I heard he was popular in FL (0+ / 0-)

    but have no idea whether it's true.
    My question for a while has been -- why didn't Chris Christie run?
    I have 2 theories:
    1) he's enjoying being governor of NJ and really doesn't want to work all that hard
    2) he's got something to hide.

    Deep inside my gut tells me it's #2, but my gut is usually only 50% right (chance level), so who knows.

      sees Obama winning in 2012. That's the real reason.

      •  probably true -- but when the campaigns (0+ / 0-)

        started, the economy was so bad and Obama's approval wasn't that high, so it seemed quite possible (and still is somewhat) that Obama could be beaten.
        But I guess they might figure 2016 is far more likely since Biden probably won't run (he'll be 74 -- not impossible but pretty unlikely) so there won't be an incumbent to beat.
