Jon Corzine's remarkable comeback in the N.J. governor race

Forget Bill Clinton, the next comeback kid looks like New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine.

The former Goldman Sachs (GS) co-chairman was given up for roadkill on the New Jersey Turnpike a few months ago after the Garden State became embroiled in yet another embarrassing political scandal. In this one, politicians and rabbis -- you read that right -- were accused in a wide-ranging money-laundering scheme. The timing couldn't have been better for Republican candidate Chris Christie, a former U.S. Attorney viewed as a scrupulous crime-fighter who busted crooked politicians.
