New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie describes plans Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013, in Lavallette, N.J., while making an announcement on the reconstruction of Route 35, a major shore highway that was heavily damaged by Superstorm Sandy. Christie says more than $200 million in federal funds will be used to rebuild a 12.5-mile storm-damaged stretch of Route 35. Under an aggressive timetable he says completion is expected by the summer of 2015. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)

Well, CPAC has come and by now, gone. Time to patch things up, maybe, with the famously snubbed Chris Christie? Well, he didn't win the CPAC straw poll -- there, enough people stood with Rand Paul to hold off young fresh fellow Marco Rubio for the honor. But Christie did finish in a respectable fourth place -- just pipped for the bronze by Rick Santorum, who was invited and gave a speech that went over like gangbusters with the assembled.

But now that CPAC is over, is it time for Christie to return to the GOP fold. NowThisNews' Sara Kenigsberg worked the crowd all weekend, and the people she talked to were very postively disposed toward the New Jersey governor -- though former Florida Congressman Allen West did feel obligated to play nutritionist.

All told, something tells me that Christie being left uninvited to CPAC is going to be a one-time thing.
