Christie's week started with photos showing him lounging on a public beach closed by the state shutdown going viral across the globe. Next week doesn't promise the same kind of international response, but the term-limited Republican's name could be in the headlines again over the so-called Bridgegate scandal when his former aide is sentenced and the attorney who represented him during the scandal gets a Senate hearing to be the next FBI director.
