Is Christie the Unicorn?

From none other than Rupert Murdoch ...

Beyond the nonsense of this claim and the non-trivial fact that Romney could still win, this could actually be a real problem for Christie, who of course has ambitions for national office. I think Christie's viability for national office is over-rated because it would be hard to take his New Jersey GOP issue agenda through the national GOP primary process. But if he ends up as the guy who stabbed Romney in the back in some right-wing fever dream that will stick to him among those who want to believe the GOP was somehow cheated of a win.
