Christie's Outsized Ego

Jonathan Martin looks at the chapter on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's (R) flirtation with running for president in Dan Balz's Collision 2012 noting that the author "relies on Mr. Christie to essentially narrate the tale, which the governor, a man of considerable ego, clearly relishes."

"But Mr. Christie's recounting of his role in 2012 also offers a reminder of his high -- some would say excessive -- self-regard, and why some in Mr. Romney's campaign were so uneasy about possibly putting him on the Republican ticket last year. It is hardly unusual for a politician to have an outsized ego, but Mr. Christie lacks the masking subtlety possessed by many in his business."
