I happened to see this NJ Gov. Christie
appearance on Morning Joe (MSNBC) yesterday morning and I thought you might take ten minutes to see how a politician should both seem and be, how he should think aloud, how he should talk. Very impressive, and very disarming. You can tell how his interlocutors--even those who want to disagree with him--are disarmed, even persuaded. His character and personality for a politician are nearly perfect, in my opinion. You cannot help liking him. Honest, clear, amusing, lucid--notice that there is no "uhming and ahing" at any time, no hesitation--clearly deeply thoughtful and knowledgeable, he speaks with an authority that is rare. Very persuasive. Also, he's fat, lards the lean earth as he walks along, he's thrice wider than other men. therefore worthy of our entire trust. It is not possible that this man will not run for president.
