In the Crossfire: The state of the apology

Gov. Chris Christie opened his State of the State speech today with comments on the bridge lane closing scandal. Declaring “we let down the people we are entrusted to serve,” he promised to “cooperate with all appropriate inquiries.” Christie told the joint session of the New Jersey Legislature, “The last week has certainly tested this Administration. Mistakes were clearly made. And as a result, we let down the people we are entrusted to serve.

I know our citizens deserve better. Much better. I’m the governor and I am ultimately responsible for all that happens on my watch – both good and bad”. Read the full story here.

There have been a lot of apologies. Are they enough for Chris Christie to achieve his 2014 goals for the state of New Jersey?

At 6:30pm ET. Fmr. Gov. Bob Ehrlich (R-MD) and Democratic strategist, Donna Brazile join Van Jones and guest host Sally Kohn in the Crossfire to debate Chris Christie.

Crossfire: Support for Biden and Christie in 2016

(CNN) – As 2016 chatter heats up, two political insiders spill their potential picks for their respective party's presidential nominee.

CNN political commentator and Democratic strategist Donna Brazile said if Hillary Clinton doesn't run, Vice President Joe Biden might just take the cake.

"I would love to see a woman in the White House and so my money right now would stay on Hillary," Brazile said Monday on CNN's Crossfire.

"But if Joe Biden, I got to tell you, he's been a champion for women's' equality, and I would toss my support to Joe Biden,' she told Crossfire co-host S.E. Cupp.

For his part, former Minnesota governor and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty, given a choice between GOP favorites Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, or New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, would pick Christie.

"Christie would be a stronger candidate," Pawlenty said to Crossfire co-host Van Jones. "No question in my mind."
