It's hit a few East Coast media sites, it will be interesting to see how the Wig spins his views when Christie has to pander to the right to try and win the nomination. Didn't Howard mention once that he'd never put a fat person in a position of power because it showed they have no self-control? http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ss..._great_president_says_howard_stern_audio.html TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie already has the backing of a king if he runs for president: Howard Stern, the self-described “king of all media.” The longtime radio host declared on his show today he’s a fan of New Jersey’s governor, who is mulling a 2016 presidential campaign, because he’s “down to earth.” “I think he’d be a great president,” he said. That didn’t sit too well with Stern's guest on the show: Meghan McCain, the daughter of 2008 Republican presidential nominee and U.S. Sen. John McCain, who is no fan of Christie. “See, I think he’s one of the warmest human beings,” Stern said. “That’s so funny,” Meghan McCain responded, explaining she didn’t find Christie “very warm” when she met him. But Stern didn’t stop there. “I’m just saying on a personal level, he’s the kind of guy you do want to hang out with. He’s a very nice down to earth person and he had discussions with me that I didn’t think a politician would,” Stern said. “I find him to be refreshingly honest.” “All right,” said Meghan McCain, with an air of skepticism in her voice. She then said she was fascinated that Stern would be friends with Christie. “I didn’t like him when I met him and, I don’t know you, but he doesn’t seem like the type of person you would hang out with,” she said. Last year, Meghan McCain took a jab at Christie during an interview on CNN’s“Piers Morgan Live,” when she declared she was “done with Chris Christie.” “I used to love Chris Christie,” she said during the Sept. 2013 interview. "I'm kind of done with Chris Christie right now. I think politicians, obviously, there's some level of self-promotion that you have to do,” she said. “But I would like the next leader of the Republican Party, and the next nominee, to maybe be a little more interested in helping the country than just their platform." Christie brushed off the comments at the time. "Are we really going to respond to Meghan McCain?" the governor said. "If John McCain wants to say something to me, I'm happy to respond. Meghan McCain has no standing to be critiquing me other than as a citizen. And since she doesn't live in New Jersey, I'm not responding to her."
