Gov. Chris Christie On 2012 Prospects: “I Already Know I Could Win”

As many conservatives continue to hold out hope that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie might throw his hat into the ring and pursue the Republican nomination for President in 2012, Christie continues to adamantly deny he’s running. However, every now and then, he cracks the door open just a little bit with a comment that makes observers wonder whether he might run after all.

In an interview with the conservative magazine National Review, Christie stated:

“I have people calling me and saying to me ‘Let me explain to you how you could win.’ And I’m like, ‘You’re barking up the wrong tree. I already know I could win.’ That’s not the issue . . . But I’ve got to believe I’m ready to be president, and I don’t.”

Maybe in a few months Christie will believe he is officially “ready” and change his tune about running? Yet with his abundant confidence in himself and his abilities, it seems like he’s well on his way towards being “ready” for the highest office. And if he doesn’t know other Republican candidates could win against Obama, might that speed up his own readiness as well?
