AND ONE REASON HE COULD:

Five reasons Christie will never be president (Tom Moran, December 12, 2014, Newark Star-Ledger)

 It ain't going to happen. And here are five reasons why. [...]

His record: New Jersey has roughly 300,000 people seeking jobs, and is producing less than 600 a month. In the last year, the state's rate of job growth ranked dead last in the contiguous United States.

The budget is a mess, too. We have the nation's second lowest bond rating, and Wall Street recently warned that it could get worse. The state's roads and bridges are crumbling, much worse than most, and the fund to fix them is broke. [...]


Jeb: Let's assume that Republicans in 2016 do what they always do: Flirt with the extremists, but choose a moderate in the end. That's Christie's path to the nomination.

But now it seems that Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, is likely to jump in. Every poll shows Bush beating Christie. Bush is especially strong among Latinos, a key concern of the GOP. He has better record as governor. He has no Bridgegate problem. And he doesn't scream and pick fights.

On the other hand, Jeb could easily pick him for VP, where you want an attack dog, and then he's a heartbeat away....
