New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has spent the week sparring with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and scooping up Democratic endorsements from a growing group of so-called Christiecrats. Is it 2016 already? Not quite. But Christie's gubernatorial re-election campaign is starting to look a little, well, presidential.

So happy to see a leader who is able to work on the issues and not keeping his party happy or focused on bashing the other party.

Gov. Christie still has far too many social positions that are diametrically opposed to the Democratic platform. I think "Christiecrats" need to rethink. Just because the governor was buddy-buddy with President Obama re Sandy clean-up doesn't mean he's a Democrat.
