A great clip from Chris Christie’s speech at the Reagan Center, tonight:
You can watch the full speech, with transcript, at Hot Air.
Allahpundit reports that Christie basically said he wasn’t running, but “won’t way definitively”:
Another questioner pleaded with him to run and he gave a halting answer about how flattered he is by the attention before insisting that the drive to run has to come internally, not from outside enthusiasm. The thing is, he wouldn’t definitively say whether he feels the drive or not. And the crowd was simply eating out of his hand. If he needs a pretext in a week or two to explain why he’s changed his mind, he could point to this speech and the reaction from the audience as having driven him to it.

Here’s an over 14 minute montage of Christie saying he’s not running:
