VERY well said.
I LOVED Christie for a while; then I saw what we now all see.
Ann stayed on the wagon too long, true, but, as you say, we all make mistakes.
Ironic, the only 3 Republicans to understand the proper tone in the past couple years - Newt, Christie and Trump - are one inconsistent genius and two moderate libs. That tone is damned important.....as these three showed at various times since 2009.
