It's come to this: In Vanity Fair, Abigal Tracy essentially does a requiem for the one-time star in the Republican party: Chris Christie.
His poll numbers are at the all-time low of 21%.
He has been officially pulled into Bridgegate. A judge issued a summons to determine if he should be investigated for criminal action.
It was a mistake to become involved with Donald Trump. Vanity Fair notes that he has delegated his transition team activities to someone else.
And, he bet on the wrong horse in being away from New Jersey so much during his chase after national office and national recognition. He still has about 1.5 years as governor. During that time he may or may not save his legacy.
If Bridgegate results in a criminal conviction, he could go to jail. Of course, he would lose his law license.
One wonders if this heavyweight has some kind of tragic flaw. He had worked so hard to build what he has destroyed through so many errors of judgment.
