    Just a little traffic? And so it goes, the media has picked their man. Wonder if Katz feels differently about his buts this morning.

    The road to 2016 may now have some more traffic on it, but if Christie’s name doesn’t make a damning appearance in a subpoenaed Bridgegate document, he will have the cash and connections to mount a strong bid for the presidency.

      Possibly the worst piece on Christie I have read in days by @mattkatz00 because they liked him before, so no worries?
      @DemFromCT Might be damaged long-term, or in New Jersey, or among general electorate. My only point was early signs from base r good 4 him.

        aren't going to back someone with this kind of baggage. There are too many viable GOP candidates out there. I  think Paul Ryan has a very good shot, now that Christie is out of the way.

        Extreme right didn't like Christie much to begin with.

        Wall Street $ will find another horse to back.

          Everyone in the Senate and Congress is tainted with the shutdown, budgets, etc.

          Susana Martinez of New Mexico fills all their electoral gaps. She'll be the Christie swap-in.

            I don't think so, somehow. They may dangle her name, but I don't think the Big Boys pulling the strings inside the party are going to go that route -- even if she doesn't look anything like Sarah Palin.

          •  is she ready for prime time, (0+ / 0-)

            so to speak?

            My hunch has been for a long time that Martinez will most likely be the Republicans' 2016 vice presidential nominee.

            But, can they make the case that she's ready to president?

          They just need someone who will embrace supply side politics and economics who is electable. I think they will find someone they will support.
