"Think for a moment who makes up the Republican Party, and most specifically the part of the GOP base that dominates the presidential nomination process. Think about the people they seriously considered for their party’s presidential nomination last time around. Think Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, and Newt Gingrich. Now, quickly, think Christie. Now think Sesame Street: 'One of these things is not like the others; one of these things just doesn’t belong.' It’s laughable that the party that has previously seriously considered some fairly inconceivable candidates as worthy of the GOP nomination would suddenly reverse course and head over to a center-right candidate such as Christie."

Read The Atlantic, Chris Christie Was Never Going to Be President Anyway, which states that "[t]he New Jersey governor's chances at the Republican nomination were way overrated even before Bridgegate" AKA traffiquiddick.
