Starting Lineup: Christie, The Teflon Governor

January 13, 2011
Romney Takes Another Step: Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, meanwhile, took another step toward a 2012 campaign by resigning from the board of directors of Marriott International. The move is a clear step that Romney is moving toward a presidential bid -- he resigned from the board the first time nearly ten years ago when he was preparing for a run for governor. The Starting Five 1. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) opened her eyes for the first time since the shooting last weekend. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif), Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) were by her side when it happened. 2. Nevada Sen. John Ensign (R) -- who is suffering in the polls -- was at the same event as potential GOP challenger Rep. Dean Heller on Wednesday and both talked about the upcoming Senate race. Things got very awkward. You gotta love politics! 3. Dallas Mayor and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison ally Tom Leppert (R) isn't running for re-election and is looking a lot more like a Senate contender. 4. North Public Service Commissioner Brian Kalk (R), who is very high on many North Dakota Republicans' lists of top recruits, said he is considering a run against Sen. Kent Conrad (D). (Check out the photo, Kalk appears to have the same barber as Montana Sen. Jon Tester (D).) 5. The president of the Greater Boston Tea Party, Christen Varley said Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R) is "completely safe" and likely won't face a tough primary in 2012.
