The great flirtation of Chris Christie with running for the 2012 Republican nomination appears to be careening towards a final decision, as key Christie supporters have been told that, by Wednesday, they will know what their future holds.

The only thing not clear is if Christie will put an end the school girl crush, or become their dream date to the prom:

A key group of uncommitted Iowa GOP contributors that has tried to woo New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to run for president has been told to “wait until Wednesday” before backing another campaign in the race for 2012.

“I’ve been told after Wednesday I’m free to do whatever I want,” one of those contributors told CNN.

So what will it be? Boutineer or a boot to the rear?
