See what happens when you don't cater to the Tea Party extremists? People start to like you again.

That said, they'll likely drum him outta of the GOP for being a RINO. Or, if you're as petty as some people, because of his "BMI".

Wide approval by democrats in a blue state will kill him in the republican Presidential primary.

I'm waiting for the dead hooker or young boy... or maybe Christie will forget to wear a flag pin.

  I wonder if Alexander the Great had to wear a flag pin into battle before any of his troops would follow him?  He didn't have to deal with the Internet Journalism University graduates that populate the media conduit of the sorry corporate press.

Like him or not, he put New Jersey before his party and fought for it and fought hard - and he got what he needed.

People love a winner and nobody can ever question whether Alexander the Great was a winner.

They won't persih. They'll galvanize their base to fight Rove's moderation platform. I still look for them to pick up seats in 2014. Us democrats are lazy. We don't turn out for midterms.
