    Romney--who also pandered to the Tea Party and turned off so many people by seeming like what he was (an out-of-touch ultra rich guy) and he STILL got 47% of the vote.

    By the time 2016 rolls around the Dems will have held the White House for 8 years.  History shows us that the natives are always restless about something, and it's hard to hold the White House for too long with one party.

    Christie will pander like Romney, but won't have the same unlikeable air as Romney.  He will appeal to a lot more people.  And with his governing record he will seem a lot more moderate than he is because he will be compared to the Tea Party.

    Make no mistake: Christie is a legit threat if he has the discipline to make it through an entire election process without losing his cool and offending too many people.  He'll run on a message of changing Washington, which always has appeal and ironically even more so because of the Tea Party whose support he will have at that point.
