Cuomo And Christie - A Bromance

Don't read this WSJ article on an empty stomach - it details how close Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo are, the closest any two governors of New Jersey and New York have ever been:

The two powerful governors have dined together in Manhattan and chat by cellphone. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has asked staff to leave the room when he talks to his New York counterpart, Andrew Cuomo.

And while Mr. Cuomo likes to dissect the strengths and weaknesses of other politicians in private, he has little negative to say about Mr. Christie even behind closed doors, a person close to the Democrat said. Mr. Christie respects Mr. Cuomo's political savvy and has no desire to spar with him, a longtime friend said.
Messrs. Cuomo and Christie have forged an extraordinarily close and politically useful partnership, both in public and private, for two ambitious governors from different parties and with divergent styles, according to friends of both men and political analysts. 

"New York and New Jersey governors need to work together because they jointly administer several key agencies, but in the past the relationship between governors has been either icy or nonexistent," said Darren Dopp, a confidant of Mr. Cuomo who is also former aide to both former Gov. Eliot Spitzer and former Gov. Mario Cuomo. "I don't know of a better working relationship than now exists with Cuomo and Christie, at least not in modern times."

I would argue that they've been partners in crime, colluding over Port Authority toll hikes and PATH fare hikes, colluding over the Bridgegate mess, now collaborating on security issues for NY and NJ that helps both of them as they run in their respective races (Cuomo for re-election, Christie for president.)

It's a bromance between Christie and Cuomo, surely, but it's also a partnership in criminality.
