The companion article to the image is a little silly, but the central point is pretty sensible: "Christie is a strong and natural leader. He is clear about what he wants. He fights like an angry pit bull. And he cuts a deal only after he’s roughed up the other side a bit." And while the author, Tom Moran, is arguing that Obama should fight for liberal causes the way Christie fights for conservative ones, the cover is likely to have Republicans wondering why Christie isn't running for election in 2012 (that is, for those few Republicans who aren't already asking).
