"That wasn't an acceptance speech, that was an announcement speech"

That's political commentator Alex Castellanos' first reaction to hearing Chris Christie's victory speech. He won a second term as New Jersey's governor. The AC360 Later panel debates what his speech says about Christie's presidential ambitions.

    @ Craig ...so, let me get this strait...part of the reason why you won't vote for this guy is because he is fat??? Did you also partially sway away from Romney because he is a "mormon"??? I see many Democrats fawn over Hillary Clinton and they have been for the past 3 years. With the 3 years until the next Presidential Election, that means that Democrats will be fawning over her for 6 years...so who cares about just a 3 years, when 6 years is the other option.

    As far as what Christie has done...maybe you don't read the papers/news websites/ watch the news. Christie is credited with turning around Jersey's economy. Jersey's economy is stronger than most of the states that surround it and it continues to improve...but then again you say that Christie hasn't done anything. Christie...as well as Romney...worked with his opponents. Jersey is filled with Democrats, and Christie continued to get re-elected. Why you might ask??? Because he go past the partisan muck and does his duty. That duty is to do what is in the best interest of the constituency. It is evident in his poll numbers, decrease in unemployment, increase in the strength of the economy, rapid repair after the hurricane (more rapid than NYC). That's what Christie and his leadership strengths have done.

    SO tired of hearing you all fawn over this guy a full three long years before the next presidential election. The man has never said or done anything special, except be rude to people in public on occasion. He got federal funds for his state after a natural disaster- duh! He's not as crazy as Rand Paul or Ted Cruz- just like 99% of us.His health is a very real issue. Fawn away, CNN pundits, because all I have to do is change the channel.
