"In office just over a year, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has become quite the hot commodity to Republican presidential hopefuls. They all want to kiss his ring. “Let’s judge the complete field once they all get in,” Christie says, declining to publicly back any one White House aspirant even as a stream of them trek up the turnpike to pay respects to the top Republican in Trenton as the 2012 Republican nomination fight gets under way."

Should Chris Christie endorse anyone? Should he campaign for anyone? Raise money for anyone? What if they get elected? What does that do to his chances when he decides to run in say, 2016, and they're running as the incumbent? I'm speaking strategy here, for him, not what is the "nice" thing to do or what's expected of him by the party. Put yourself in his place. What would you do?

well certainly he should take a stand after the primaries, but not before.

Have to agree. If he has aspirations for higher office I don't think he should endorse anyone except generically say he'll support the Republican candidate. If he decides to run himself you don't want to see the political ads of your opponent with you saying wonderful things about someone who proved to be a turkey/loser.
