    I don't think that Christie's siding with Obama totally makes him a good guy now. He did cancel the proposal to rebuild the tunnel into Penn Station because the Tea Party thinks oil company profits are more important than improving mobility in America

    The furor over Friday's [10.5] job report revealed a political movement that is rooting for American failure, so obsessed with taking down Obama that good news drives its members into a blind rage. -Paul Krugman

      and he cancelled a major public transportation project out of partisan spite, and he's definitely no friend to LGBT people, with his gay marriage veto. And it's sort of pathetic the way he moons after Bruce Springsteen. (PSST... Hey Christie... don't look now, but The Boss is kind of a progressive!)

      But he would be formidable in the general, if the Republicans ever let him get that far. Fortunately for us, the Republicans still know how to bring the crazy... and for that reason, a Christie nomination would have the same likelihood as a cold day in Hades.
