"I see it as part of his very purposeful rehabilitation effort, his very purposeful effort to say nationally that, 'Hey, I'm still Chris Christie, I'm still here, nothing's different,'" said David Redlawsk, director of the Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling in New Jersey.
Later on the program, Christie joked that as bad as the lane closing scandal has been, the dance performance was far more humiliating to his family "because I actually did that."
