"Not gonna happen"
-Headline of the Day-
"Gov. Chris Christie will not run for president."
After media-fueled speculation that Chris Christie may run for president started a rumor that Chris Christie would run for president, Christie himself shot that rumor down today.
"Now is not the time..." the Governor of New Jersey said in a press conference. "New Jersey, whether you like it or not, you're stuck with me." The news comes as Christie-mania hits a fever-pitch, with at least one poll showing that Republican voters didn't care whether he jumped in or not. I'm sure the disappointment will be just as impalpable as the excitement was.
Wait for pundits to say this is the latest sign that Christie is still weighing his options. At least, until they get around to speculating as to whether Mike Huckabee might run. (NJ.com)
