      logic Samson offered for his resignation applies by analogy to Christie, I am sure he will put the best interest of the people of New Jersey ahead of his own political ambition, don't you think?

      My question is should I have instead, have said Christie Should Resign Now!"  With an exclamation point. Or does that seem to strident?

      Now resign, seems more like a calm observation that in the natural flow on the emergent cleaning the slate agenda, the momentum now flows from Samson to Christie.

      Resign now! implies more of the idea "us citizens are mad as hell and we sick and tired of this shit and we demand you go!"

      Do you see he difference?

      I now it sort of trivial, but we are all different Superpole and this is the kind of HoundDog I am. These are the kinds of things I worry about for every sentence I write. Can you imagine what my life is like?

        "Christie should now resign" - between the two. Given the nuanced difference in meaning of each, I think this one makes more sense in the big scheme of things. Again, just my opinion, since you're asking for opinions. :)

        My take:

        the probability of Christie's resignation depends on the strength of the evidence indicating he was directly involved.

        Clue: merely one person (Kelly) stating Christie directly ordered her to close to bridge will not be strong enough evidence-- obviously because Christie can simply refute this; "she's a liar". it's his word against hers-- and he's the Governor, not her.

        if there were other people in the room who were also ordered or heard the order, they must also come forward with this evidence. as things stand now, I don't see this happening.
