Insiders Say Christie Would Accept Veep Offer

New Jersey political insiders tell National Review that Gov. Chris Christie (R) would gladly accept the vice-presidential nomination, should Mitt Romney offer it.

Said one top lawmaker: "Christie is open to it, his family's comfortable with it, and he's been vetted before. He isn't going to campaign for it, but it's no secret that he would relish the opportunity to play at that level."

However, another insider says the worry is he may steal Romney's spotlight: "It's like asking Joe DiMaggio if he wants to play alongside Mickey Mantle."
