'Twas the last night of Chanukah, and who should appear, at a Chabad House Fundraiser in New Brunswick, New Jersey, but Sir Paul McCartney, himself, in the flesh.
It’s too strange to be fiction. So it must have been true.
As it happened, NJ Gov. Chris Christie was there too, to celebrate the last night of Chanukah.
The result made for great political theater. Here’s the way Gov. Christie described it: Link here.
As everyone has recognized by now, Chris Christie is a master communicator. Even Frank Rich compared him very favorably with the current occupant of the oval office.
Anyway, as Chris Christie was commenting about his encounter with Paul McCartney, he managed to add a pearl of wisdom, an insight of inestimable value… the kind of adage you learn with age but wish you had known when you were younger.
Talking about Sir Paul’s presence at the Chabad House Fundraiser, Christie explained: “No matter who you are, if your girlfriend tells you you’re going to be some place, you’re going.”
You may recall that six or so weeks ago I posted my reaction to Chris Christie’s Today Show profile. Link here.
In essence, I said that we should take Gov. Christie insistence that he does not want to run for president with a measure of doubt, because, his wife says that he would be a great president.
If he says that he is not going to run and if she says that he would be great in the job, go with his wife.
