A NYT commenter, gemli, from Boston put up this:
I was looking forward to a Christie presidency. We might have had a Republican majority in the House (and maybe even the Senate), with a bitter, smug, angry and insecure Republican man-child as president. It would have been an amusing way to bring this country's story to a close. Now it looks like it's going to drag on and on with (possibly) another Clinton at the helm, who might actually encourage us feel hopeful again, making the ultimate collapse that much more painful. With Christie, it would have been quick, like pulling off a band-aid. Now it's going to be slow, like a trip across the George Washington Bridge.
