Christie, Palin Taking Serious Looks

Former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson says Chris Christie is actively exploring jumping into the presidential race.

So there is still talk of people getting in the race. Not just [Sarah] Palin, but last week, Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey was in Chicago and had two meetings with serious Republican groups from the Midwest.” “He is actively, I think, considering getting in this race, which would throw things open once more,” he added. “But the desire for that to happen… it shows that they are not happy with the current field, they think it needs to be filled out in an important way. I don’t know if that is going to happen, but the desire for many Republicans to expand this field shows that they are not content with it.”

ABC's Jonathan Karl seems to have strong signals that Palin is now putting together an organization for a run.
