The only way we can judge him is the way he performed as US attorney. And in that position, he put away crooks who supposedly were either too powerful, too smart or too, er, politically correct to prosecute. So people like John Lynch and, especially, Sharpe James went off to prison for their crimes of long standing. Christie had the courage and determination to go after them. I can only hope he will do the same especially when it comes to the public employee unions. As a reluctant member of the AFT (I joined just so I could vote against the leadership), I have seen every conservative’s nightmare, and it certainly has changed my view of things.
