    That's a good point. I can't find it, but I swear I saw a video where he has a meltdown in an interview.

There's a lot of skeletons in Christie's closet, which is why Romney didn't pick Christie to be his running mate. It would all come out in a national campaign. Sometimes the media doesn't report these things on "prospective" candidates on purpose. They like to build up potential candidates - so that the reporter who takes them down AFTER they announce, get more fame, prominence, success, and power.

    Even though Ted Cruz is my most favorite, I think Mike Huckabee is the most electable potential 2016 Republican candidate. He was Governor for almost 10 years. And he has been in the top 3 - close to being runner up in 2008 GOP Primary, right behind McCain and Romney. Running for President (or Vice President) before usually seems to help a lot of GOP candidates, as they are usually better tested on the national stage - and are also viewed differently than a lot of the first time candidates - the one who ran before and came close to winning usually has a sense of prominence and experience about them that Republican voters seem to like.
    I think it might be a conservative dream to run an actual conservative but despite the uncertain future of Obamacare, the population has undergone a sea change from which there is no return. A steady hand on the rudder, yes. A return to even the early Bush era, no. So all that's left for conservatives to offer is fiscal discipline. That will be the pitch. But of course, it's just what they say, not what they do.

    Christie is a liberal, of sorts, and one of the few that can't be quickly demonized. People are tired of Democrats, sure, but they like those checks and they will vote their pocketbooks. Christie looks like a democrat. For all I know, he may be one in secret like a Marrano Jew. But he'll look delicious to the annoyed democrats and might actually win.

    (I do not for one instant profess that I know whereof I speak. This is just how it seems to me. I could be incredibly wrong)

    I'll assume you didn't get your Christmas card from Barack and family this year..
    It opens to a neat cardboard cut-out of the White House, with a flag on top and two black dogs in front .

    I still every once in awhile will look at that ballot and still can't believe we allow stupid people to vote.

    Right, because the votes all went in Gore's column, and not the other way.

    If stupid people were prevented from voting, the Republican party would quickly disappear into oblivion.

    If someone wasn't paying attention when they entered the polling booth, you see how one could have voted for the better candidate without knowing it.

    You could also see what could happen if the old folks couldn't see who they were voting for.

    Even YOU have to admit, that's a pretty bad ballot.
