  •  I think that Christie is fighting for something... (8+ / 0-)

    much bigger than his job or his presidential aspirations but for his own personal opinion of himself. He is driven by an internal locus of an unshakeable faith that he is a Great Man.

    Remember Christie saying that he just knew that the Boss would love him if he ever got to know him? Well, the Boss has gotten to know him and hates him.

    I still think that his story has elements of Greek tragedy where a heroic figure suffers greatly from a fatal flaw that he strives to avoid acknowledging.

    •  I think CC can't afford to lose any battle, big or (8+ / 0-)

      small at this point.  

      The size of the battlefield continues to grow.  And I still think the biggest, juiciest stuff hasn't been revealed.

      Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

        to be all that it takes to bring him down and once he's pulled down the rest of the investigations will peter out.  I have a suspicion that if they wanted to investigate every office and every political campaign in New Jersey they'd probably find lots of laws broken, but that would happen with or without CC.  I think when CC is pulled down, that will satisfy the media beast for the blood it needs to keep going.  By that time, the fall campaign will be underway and there will be other topics to cover.  Like reality TV.
