    ...am in complete disagreement with those who say that Christie will have a hard time getting the GOP nomination.
    That may be true, depending on how the nomination contest plays out.

    However, it seems to me that Romney (and McCain) is  inconvertible proof that it is, in fact, quite easy for a more moderate Republican to get the nomintion.

    In fact, all Christie has to do is to follow Romney's path to the nomination.

    There is one requisite, however: that there be more than one viable person well to Christies right. And it appears at this time that Christie will not be lacking for opposition from the right, with the likelihood that he will be facing the likes of Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio. Having those three running against him is a virtual guarantee that the far-right vote will be split, allowing Christie a clear path to the nomination.

    That assumes that Christie can prevent one far-right candidate from becoming dominant. Recent history, however, shows that not only is it doable, but, in my opinion, it is quite likely.
