I think it's very simple. Christie is simply looking to get himself re-elected. The hardest leap was his first election in a blue state. But now that he is governor, he wants to appeal to liberals and is leaning heavily in that direction. Unfortunately, he is all too typical a conservative -- conservative when it helps him to stand out from the crowd, to suit his own purpose, but then liberal as a loon to get re-elected. A typical politician. Nothing new at all.
