Chris Christie’s behavior in the light of Hurricane Sandy — lavishly praising President Obama and touring Jersey with him (while not appearing with Mitt Romney) — has been perplexing. But according to the Associated Press, Christie has gotten one perk from his actions:
Speaking Monday at a briefing on storm recovery. Gov. Chris Christie revealed he unexpectedly spoke with Bruce Springsteen earlier in the day. Christie had been discussing storm-related matters with President Barack Obama when Obama handed the phone to Springsteen, who was traveling with him as part of a campaign trip.

Christie says he wept at home after meeting his idol, calling it a major highlight during a tough week.
