FILE - In this May 28, 2013, file photo New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and President Barack Obamawalk along the boardwalk in Point Pleasant, N.J., during and inspection tour of the Jersey Shore's recovery from Hurricane Sandy. Christie has shown he's willing to take heat from fellow Republicanswas he for actions that could benefit him in the future, perhaps for a 2016 presidential campaign. Outside of Obama, few other political leaders can command attention like Christie, and he has used it forge a bipartisan, tell-it-like-it-is reputation that has helped him generate high approval ratings during his first term and bolster his re-election chances.
