Quick, say the first thing that comes to your mind when I say "Chris Christie." If you are like most people -- and by that I mean the kind of person who has thoughts about Chris Christie in February 2015 -- you likely said "Bridgegate," "tough," "bully" or "straight talking." Put aside Bridgegate for the moment (yes, I know it's hard). The last three adjectives describing Christie all speak to the persona he has built during his five-plus years as governor of New Jersey: Unafraid of confrontation -- whether that's with his allies, his enemies or the media.
"This is who I am, and this is who the people elected," Christie told Moran.
