Jindal would make a good nominee. So would Daniels, Haley and McDonnel. Christie may not yet be aware of the ill-will he engendered from his own party for all but french-kissing Obama on that beach. He allowed himself to fall into Obama's trap, and that combined with other prohibitive factors (like his selfish RNC speech, and his weight) contribute to minimize his potential as a Presidential nominee anytime in the near future. Jeb Bush would also be a fine candidate, altough he may not wish to put himself or his family back into the line of viscious liberal attack by running himself.
