>>> the new friendship between president obama and governor christie has gone to a new level. the president started the last day of the campaign in wisconsin where he was joined on stage with new jersey's rock legend bruce springsteen . after wisconsin, bruce and the president hopped on air force one and touched down in ohio where bruce urged ohioans to vote for the president and move forward. and this is where it gets good. the other jersey guy getting attention and praise these days for his handling of sandy is governor chris christie . but there's one person that really matters to the governor. the atlantic recently reported that the governor has been to 129 bruce springsteen shows. he knows every word to every springsteen song and dreams of playing drums in the e street band but springsteen ignores christie at shows because of a major difference in politics. so the governor of jersey gets snubbed and ignored by his own new jersey idol. but those days are over. governor christie took a call from president obama today and here's what he said happened on that call.
>> he was calling from air force one and he told me that in times of real difficulty he thought that the only thing better than one jersey guy were two jersey guys and he put bruce springsteen on the phone. we had a good conversation today and it was great to talk to the president and even better to talk to bruce .
>> wow. this friendship might last.
