    Who might have fared better?

      It's no wonder Democrats don't want to challenge powerful incumbents. When they lose a longshot race, they get blamed for everything.

    •  One thing that struck me... (1+ / 0-)

      I don't know if you saw the debate between her and Christie, but she was pretty awful. Her totally uncivil response when asked to say something nice about him vs. his answer to the same question has gone viral.

      I think, given that Buono was a default choice when others decided not to run, there were probably many candidates that would have been better, although I don't know if any of them would made it a race.

      Finally, bj, I will appeal to your usually optimistic manner. Given that Christie is likely going to win this race by 20 points, I sure HOPE some New Jersey Democrat would have been better than Buono. Otherwise we're conceding Christie  will be pretty hard to beat if he runs for Senate or President.

        I've been following this race from a distance, to some degree. I didn't know about the viral video, for instance.

        I think Christie could be a force if he were to run for Senate or President--but only a certain version of him, especially at the presidential level.
