I will be studying up on Chris Christie. I think he might just be the smartest man out there right now. For some reason he comes off like an up from the streets union boss, but his actual credentials are pretty upper crusty- what a combination! Somehow, he came through all of this leaving me with the impression that he should have been on the ticket. If I'm taken in, I have to assume that others are as well. He needs to lose some weight, Americans can be very shallow and his weight is into the health risk category which some consider relevant to serving as President. Truth is, Ryan will probably hit the dirt before Christie, but that's not the popular perception.
