New Jersey Gov.Chris Christie is expected to easily win a second term when the votes are counted tonight. Almost immediately, pundits will ramp up talk about Christie's chances in a potential 2016 run for president.
Let's get ahead of the pundit curve, with one saying "no" and the other saying "yes."
I guarantee you that the American public will very quickly become repelled at the sight of a Jersey loudmouth bullying ordinary citizens who have the temerity to disagree with him.
The truth is that Christie's style is less specific to New Jersey than most people (including Christie) would have you think. ... Christie's confrontational personality can appeal to all sorts of electorates so long as he trains his anger in the right places.
