Christie's Path to White House May Be Through State House

Charles Stile: "Hardly a week goes by without Chris Christie leaving New Jersey -- sometimes more than once -- to promote Republican candidates for governor and, by extension, his own hopes to become his party's choice for president in 2016. But the strategy may be fatally flawed."

"Governor Christie's best -- and possibly only -- route to the White House these days could be his daily commute to his inner office in the State House, not a bunch of flights crisscrossing the country to champion his brand. More governing, less galloping."

"Essentially, Christie needs to cobble together a new record of achievement. The first-term hero saga that wowed everyone from hard-hat union workers to Henry Kissinger is an old narrative that's been overtaken by a sinking state economy. This self-proclaimed bipartisan deal maker should stay here and write a convincing sequel, some political operatives believe."
