Politico has a must read story up this morning saying Gov. Chris Christie was actually Mitt Romney's first choice for Vice President.
The article hints at some bad blood between Christie and the Romney camp and ends with an ominous threat from a Romney insider.

The story seems to contradict portions of a New York Post story that ran on day one of the GOP National Convention that said Christie turned down the job because he wasn't sure Romney could win.

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated.

The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
