New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is being more Palinesque than Shermanesque as he cannot stand to have the national media spotlight turned off. Everytime he says he is not running for President, another "source" comes out to fan the flames.
The outspoken first term Governor is being urged to run but has strongly eschewed doing so, even to the point of saying he is "not ready" for the Presidency.
Like President Obama, Mr Christie is a national media phenomenon with scant credentials for the White House. Instead of lofty and soaring rhetoric like Mr. Obama, Governor Christie sports an appealing to some, in your face demeanor that may or may not play to the nation.
The media elixir about running is potent and intoxicating. Mr. Christie is close to being over the legal limit and he may want to take a cue from a neighboring governor who will run in 2016. Andrew Cuomo purposely is laying low...doing his job...and staying away from the national spotlight.
Governor Christie would find a run difficult and once in the race would find it consuming and debilitating. Go back to Trenton and run your state, sir.
