    reaction was when Katrina happened.  Was it just as important that Louisiana and other gulf states got the help they needed?

      (and being a partisan hack about it) - so I'm not sure that he reactions to Katrina are all that relevant or likely to have been recorded.

      Let's be honest.  He's a partisan Republican who I would never support for any elective office.  But he's also the Governor of New Jersey, and he has been doing a reasonably good job of pushing the interests of his constituents over the last few weeks, even against the agenda of his party nationally.

      I can respect him for that much more than I ever would have expected to, based on his prior record, and I really do hope that this results in him being in a position to run for national office, as I would much rather have a Presidential race between two people both of whom I could imagine would be at least OK Presidents, rather than the last two campaigns where you have the opposition being someone you wouldn't trust to run a convenience store.
