13. Sadly the party CAN'T TAKE someone like Christie anymore.

Maybe back in the '70s Christie would get more support from party insiders. I read a Time magazine article about Roger Goodell today. It talked about his dad Charles Goodell being a liberal Republican as the senator appointed after RFK became USAG. Sen. Goodell introduced the first bill to end the War in Vietnam only to lose the 1970 election to the more conservative Republican James Buckley.

Arlen Specter, who remained a moderate Republican for nearly 3 decades after that ran out of fashion, became a Democrat for his last year in the Senate.
