The early consensus among New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s many Wall Street supporters is that the George Washington Bridge flareup has hurt him but barring any new revelations, it will not derail his possible presidential candidacy in 2016.

    Is that the first time any Republican Politician of A Certain Age has been found to have anything to do with Vietnam other than avoiding service?

    Technically, the old gentleman is correct. This is an auto roadway bridge. Nothing can be "derailed" by it. However, things can burn and crash on it.
