    Christie - on paper - would be a major player in this primary season. I seriously have questions about his physical stamina and ability to endure in such a taxing contest. But its his decision.

    What does Christie have to offer that isn't already in the current GOP line-up?

    Haymaket, why the concerns about his stamina? Is he ill? Recovering from illness or injury?

    He isn't the current line-up. (outside of Paul). The top two, Romney and Perry stand for nothing.

    Could you be a bit more specific, 1Perry (or anyone else)? What does Christie bring to the table from the GOP POV that is lacking?

    Thanks for health answer and union observation.

    I find Chris Christie to be very funny and very likable. However, the American people are very superficial. Since the television age, Americans for the most part the vote for the more handsome and virile man in the race. Think about it, Obama over McCain, Bush over Kerry (the ugly tree pretty much fell on Kerry), Bush over Gore, Clinton over Dole, Clinton over Bush Sr, and so on and so forth.

    There is no way the American people would have someone as morbidly obese as Christie is as the face of the nation to the rest of the world. If the guy wants the job he needs to lose some weight.

    I don't know as much as I'd like about Christie....but I think he'd be interesting.
