Chris Christie Says He Won't Run for President, but Obama Re-election Campaign is Still Set on Digging Up Dirt

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has clearly asserted multiple times that he has no intention to run for President:
"Short of suicide, I don't really know what I'd have to do to convince you people that I'm not running. I'm not running."
However, according to the New York Post, the Obama re-election campaign is working on digging up dirt to use against Christie in case of a potential run.
The operatives have chosen not to dispatch their own people to New Jersey, but instead are talking to people there and in New York who know Christie from his time in the governor's office, as a gubernatorial candidate and as US attorney.
Obama is not the only one who is still questioning whether Christie will run. Top GOP donors are saying there could still be a chance of a Presidential bid:
They say Christie might enter the race if he can get part of his pension-reform agenda passed in Trenton and score a GOP takeover of one of the Democratic-controlled houses of the state Legislature in November.
What do you think? Will Christie bend and enter the race? If so, would you vote for him in the Republican Primary?
