I say it now ... Christie is the odds on favorite for the 2016 GOP nomination. The beginning of that is the purge of Conservatives.
I will be interested to see how many of us dutifully fall in line because “oh no we can’t have *fill in the blank* as President”. Sadly, I think it will be WAY too many of us.
After Christie’s lovefest with Obama, several Democrat friends went out of their way to tell me how impressed they were with Christie, how he was their favorite Republican, etc.
I will wait to see what they think of him four years from now if he decides to run against a Democrat for President.
