Christie's Two-Front War

First Read: "Today was supposed to be the best of times for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie -- his inauguration for his second term, a celebration of his 22-point re-election victory last November, and preparation for a possible presidential bid. Instead, it's among the worst, and we're not talking about the snowstorm hitting the Northeast. Christie's biggest political problem right now is that he's fighting wars on two different fronts, both of which increasingly look like wars of attrition."

"Bottom line: At the very minimum, the first half of Christie's 2014 is going to be consumed by these two different investigations, plus any new revelations that surface. And that buys other potential 2016 Republicans some additional time. Maybe the biggest beneficiary: former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush."
