BREAKING: Christie on verge of a decision

Washington (CNN) - CNN has learned that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is on the verge of announcing whether he will seek the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.

In conversations with several sources Monday, it was clear the Governor wants to make his decision this week. One of the sources said Christie spent time this weekend discussing with his wife the pros and cons of a late entry into the race, and this source said look for a decision within the next 48 hours.

Will he or won't he? That depends on who you ask. One longtime advocate of a Christie presidential run said he senses a change of heart in the governor and, quote, "I see him running," but another says Christie is methodically going through the challenges he would face and says, "I hope he does, but think wiser minds will prevail."

    I thought he said at the Ronald Reagan library last week that we should all watch the video of him saying "No" a million different ways to find out what his answer is?

    As much as I'd love to see him run, I doubt he will. He is far too realistic and has way too much common sense to jump in at this stage. If he does jump in the pool, he'll wash many others OUT of the pool in a tsunami... hahaha

    One thing is for sure, the Republlican debates would skyrocket in viewership.

    Who cares? He'll peak and fade in 4 weeks just like the other exciting Governor/candidate, Perry.
