    I agree, he did a great job. I think when he talked about him joking about it several weeks ago did the trick.

    Rand Paul can probably beat her if they ran today. She is damaged goods

    Democratic strategist, Bob Shrum said earlier, that he thought this controversy and the way Christie handled it will help him.

    The only way that Rand Paul will see the inside of the White House is as a guest.

    The man has spoken against the 1964 Civil Rights Act,that will not be forgotten and it will cost him a lot of votes.

    I suppose that's good news, but IIRC Shrum has never been associated with a winning POTUS campaign.

    I Don't Know
    I don't know, I watched him on CNN and listened to a couple of their pundits. They think he did the right thing in apologizing and firing the guy. They also think he is home free unless another smoking gun is found that ties it directly to him. At least as far as they are concerned, the bridge closing is behind him. For now as they put it. I tend to believe them. I know democrats will try to tar him for this and republicans will say it is no big deal, he's innocent and just a product of a democratic witch hunt. But I am not sure how independents will view this whole thing.

    But I will worry about independents later. I am still not sure if Christie can win in the Republican primaries and all of this is moot if he doesn't. Christie probably has more to worry about him embracing President Obama in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy than the bridge closing.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I intend to keep thinking that.

    If he ever gets elected president of the USA I'll admit that I was wrong, but right now I'm saying that isn't going to happen.

    4 of the latest polls matching Paul against Clinton
    CNN/Opinion Research Clinton 54 Paul 41 Clinton +13
    Quinnipiac Clinton 48 Paul 41 Clinton +7
    McClatchy/Marist Clinton 55 Paul 40 Clinton +15
    Quinnipiac Clinton 49 Paul 40 Clinton +9

    But with a little less than 3 years to go, these polls do not mean that much, just a snapshot of the day. But what is important is the favorable/unfavorable ratings. Here they are for most candidates:
    Clinton 47% favorable 45% unfavorable
    Christie 43% favorable 31% unfavorable
    Paul 34% favorable 39% unfavorable
    Cruz 26% favorable 40% unfavorable
    Bush 31% favorable 41% unfavorable

    Those in the minus area have a lot of work to do. Clinton is well known, flaws and all. Christie is better known than the rest, but we will have to see how this bridge incident hurts him. The rest need a lot of improvement to become a viable candidate. But they have the time.
