OPINION: Christie’s not ready, but he may be ready in the futureSo what happens now to Chris Christie? Will he campaign for the Republican nominee? Will he settle back into New Jersey politics exclusively? Not since William Howard Taft graced the White House in the early 20th century has there been a national political presence like Christie. Larger than life both physically and emotionally, Christie plays the political game like a blitzing middle linebacker: if he zeroes in on you, you’ll feel it.
