No path for Christie
Chuck Todd and company at NBC describe two ways to win the GOP nomination.
The first is to "sell yourself as the right candidate to win over the base on the issues -- i.e., the ideological warrior." The second is to "sell yourself as the most electable, the candidate who can beat Hillary Clinton -- i.e., the winner."
As for Christie's conservative ideological purity, well, no so much. And as a candidate with the broad-based support to win it all? Again, no.
So what does he think his path to victory is? Since Christie will never be the darling of the ideological right, it has to be in his belief he can sell himself as the most electable. No idea what he's basing that on.
Whatever he's thinking, he's delusional.
