Also joining us, bloomberg political analyst matt.
We were talking about how chris christie, it is unbelievable he did not know about the land to cause a traffic jam.
What do you think e it is very believable he did not know.
I have worked for a number of politicians on both sides of the aisle.
You have offices where they have to do a lot, especially governors offices.
There is a lot to do and there are many times staff members that do things on their own.
When it comes time to fess up, the governor is saying he tried to ask a month ago to go around the table, it is not surprising somebody who had a secret knows they enunciated at that meeting and know what is about to happen so they hope it goes away on their own -- on its own.
The question is, was there an environment created in his office were seeking retribution became commonplace?
Not knowing about this specific incident is unbelief -- is totally believable.
I get your point about the number of things going on.
That last observation, to me, is the core one, which is that all chief executives are responsible for the culture they create.
Manifestly, he had aids who, at a minimum, thought if they went and did this, it would need with his approval.
And that that was consistent with what they were doing.
They clearly thought that.
In retrospect, maybe not.
He allowed that culture to happen.
Having worked in politics for many years, it is hard for me to imagine in the environment he will be dealing with in the republican party, that he had enough issues as it was, this will make it hard.
I agree with part of that.
I think if he gets through this, and i think as of today, he has got the advantage.
That could obviously change as more information comes out, whether or not he gets to this is contingent upon what we learn over the next coming weeks.
If he gets through this, i think it will give him a step higher than he was before because it is demonstrating an ability.
Most politicians successful had to overcome serious adversity or a major hit cup and they overcame it and were able to get to the next level.
A lot of information may still come out that shows what he told us today was it not totally accurate.
If this were the only kind that's time this had come up in his career, that would be one thing.
Even the incredibly long trail of similar stories that pursued him even before he was governor, i think -- i am sure you are right that american politics, people do not hold politicians accountable anymore, so he may well get away with this.
I want to change the topic a little bit.
Focus on politics in washington.
Relating to mark zuckerberg.
Such an interesting guy on so many levels.
His interest in getting involved in washington, not by trying to be the next governor, but by being involved in the u.s. movement, i am curious how he sees that.
He is still figuring that out.
What i find so remarkable is that he is america's largest tax payer and has almost single- handedly restored the state of california to fiscal solvency.
When the company went public, he paid with aliens of atari -- dollars.
The notion he is getting lyrically involved, i find it incredibly exciting.
If he applies the same process to this, we will all be way better off for it.
There is -- is there a precedents?
There our many for wealthy people.
Bill gates, not directly involved, he is very involved with his foundation.
Here is a worry.
People who are successful in one business, they make a lot of money and they automatically think, i was smart in that and i can be smart in politics.
Is that not what happened?
He made missteps.
I think he has got a lot of money and a huge resource to use.
He has a way to speed because he represents the technology company.
He cannot make the assumption he is smart just because he created a successful business.
It is a huge jump.
You are so right.
I think he already stubbed his toe in a way that causes brain to go, wait a minute, this does not compute.
Your point about silicon valley people having a harder transition to politics than most business executives is right on.
The valley is, it is not about negotiation.
Not about give-and-take.
It is about changing the world in a focused and uncompromising way.
It is not exactly the mindset that lends itself to policy, at least not at the national level.
In silicon valley, being humble and modest is a detriment in silicon valley.
In politics, it is an advantage.
I think mark zuckerberg would be smart to watch this.
If he could have a very big effect in politics, he cannot think just because he was smart
