I like him (usually) as to his stance on most matters. That aside, it seems to me this would be the wrong time for him to enter into the race. Give it a few more years, become a proven leader by turning Jersey into a forward direction with an improved economy, education standard/stats, etc. etc.
Having heard Mr.Christie, several times say that he'd need to have his heart in it and that it currently isn't... saying that in just recent weeks.... it would be nutty to see him suddenly shift direction now.
What worries me, is that the person who gets the nod from the Republicans to run next November for Pres., will try to tag Christie as their sidekick, for V.P. I don't want him taking that. Either the Republican ticket will lose, and he'll be relegated to a footnote in history books, or, they'll win and he'll be essentially just window dressing, possibly never heard from again in the political world. Of course he is young enough that he could conceivably even hold as long as 2024, when he'd be 62; but, I'd like to see him go for it in 2016 when he has (hopefully) become established and proven.
