Matt Bai just can’t quit Chris Christie:
Trump needs a guy like Christie to come in and grab the wheel of this careening presidency, and he needs it to happen now.[…]
But whatever else you want to say about Christie (and I’ve always found him to be a more complicated and gifted politician than his detractors can stand to admit), the man knows how to bring focus to a political operation, and how to advance a governing agenda, and how to balance public bluster with backroom pragmatism.
Chris Christie’s approval rating in New Jersey is nearing single digits. He narrowly avoided time in the clink for his involvement in one of the most widely derided political scandals of our era.
But Matt Bai still loves him. Why weren’t Eliot Spitzer and John Edwards given this post-debacle treatment?
Because they’re democrats, of course.
