This Is Where I Get Off

I know a number of Democrats who are looking for a reason not to vote for Chris Christie for President in 2016. These are my deal-breakers.

Memo to Chris: Marriage equality and women’s reproductive rights are, respectively, the civil rights issue and public health crisis of our generation. Get on board, or you’ll never wear the post-partisan mantle.

This is where liberals can and should choose to engage. We’ve lost the privacy/spying debate. Even if the polls were on our side, we’d still be up against an intelligence/industrial complex that makes Eisenhower’s departing warning seem quaint. We certainly won’t win the public on that issue, but if we get into power on other grounds, we can effect the change we want in those areas, too.
