Today's Chris Christie Lesson in Government

Do you think Chris Christie would be a good VP for Mitt Romney?  And would he even want the job?  Some people think he would really energize the race:
The Case for Christie  -- In a new book on Chris Christie, two authors suggest that the New Jersey governor would bring a lot of excitement to the presidential ticket if Mitt Romney picked him as his number two. You think? TheDC's Alex Pappas reports:

"The authors of a Chris Christie biography set for release on June 5 argue that the New Jersey governor would be a 'productive vice president' if presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney were to choose him as his running mate for a winning ticket in November. 'On the campaign trail he is tenacious, going after political enemies with gusto,' Bob Ingle and Michael Symons write in 'Chris Christie: The Inside Story of His Rise to Power.' 'They could sell tickets to a Christie-Joe Biden debate.'"
I actually think if word got out early that Christie was going to be the VP nominee Obama would have to dump Biden and go with Hillary Clinton or some other much stronger candidate.  Biden would be savaged by Christie.

I'm still not convinced Christie wants the job, but apparently his re-elect numbers are not looking quite so good in New Jersey and he's not a shoe-in for another term.  If he thinks he's unlikely to win again in New Jersey he just might be open to a VP pick from Romney.  Having Christie on the stump every day would certainly keep the general election interesting.
