The current buzz around whether or not Chris Christie plans on entering the already crowded presidential race is something we have all seen before. A shrinking minority of RINOs, mostly from the northeast, are unhappy that the majority of declared candidates are center-right and are making noise, desperate to show that their brand of center-left/Democrat lite ideology is still a force to be reckoned with within the Republican party. It is the exact same thing that went on with Rudy Giuliani and George Pataki.
I don’t see Chrisitie jumping in, but even if he did I cannot see how he would survive the primary. While I think he has a more agreeable personality than either Rudy or George, he is simply too far out of step with the majority of registered Republicans to win the nomination.
