    some day. So he won't be running in 2012.

    •  The GOP Has A Tradition (0+ / 0-)

      of rewarding candidates who pay their dues. This contests with the Dems where it's one and done. The real question I have is what Christie does from 2012 to 2016 should he lose. But with the Citizens United Era in full-swing I'm sure the Big Money can find a way to keep Christie fresh.

      As for Christie's chances against Obama, I'd say weak. Romney is the most formidable which is why the WH is trying to make damn sure Romney isn't the nominee. If Romeny falls through bc he's too "moderate," then I don't think another "moderate" like Pawlenty or Daniels can get the nomination either and also means Obama almost certainly wins re-election. If the GOP can't run someone with a chance of winning, they will probably want to go down with guns blazing. I think Christie is the most likely gunslinger.
