There are many reasons Christie may never be president, but his manner is not one of them. One liberal columnist claimed that Americans will be turned off by Christie's "famous bullying of ordinary citizens." This was exactly what liberals were telling us would happen in New Jersey. It never did. Maybe, writes David Harsanyi, that's because what he's really famous for is confronting political adversaries as an ordinary citizen would—or wishes he or she could.
