Oprah travels to the home of New Jersey's governor, Chris Christie, a man The New York Times calls "one of the most intriguing political figures in America." He's also been called a human bulldozer, "Governor Wrecking Ball" and "the Tony Soprano of politics." Known for his in-your-face style, Governor Christie is a YouTube sensation, a rising star in the Republican Party and the type of leader many see as our next president. Whether he's confronting voters at his infamous town hall meetings or talking tough to teachers' unions, he's a man on a mission to tackle the really big problems facing America.
Oprah rarely interviews politicians, but she makes an exception for Governor Christie because she believes he is a leader willing to go beyond sound bites and canned responses. In a candid conversation, he opens up about his lifelong struggle with weight and the guilt he carries, the best advice his mother ever gave him and why he resisted a run for the White House.
