THERE IS nothing like Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, as they slow jamm the news.
Not even The Roots could resist a dig at the NSA.
Gov. Chris Christie is also having another Democratic bromance, this one with former President Bill Clinton, as he closes CGI.
Now, Christie’s headlining the closing ceremonies of Bill Clinton’s annual international forum in Chicago.
Today’s session, called “Cooperation and Collaboration: A Conversation on Leadership,” is the product of an odd-couple pairing of Clinton and Christie that has developed in the four years since the popular former president tried unsuccessfully to end Christie’s political career before it really took off, sources close to both Clinton and Christie said.
“They’re both similar in a lot of ways,” one Clinton insider told ABC News. Clinton “respects him and his nature and he likes him as a person. Clinton likes the straightforward style. They have similar backgrounds, they were both prosecutors, Clinton as an attorney general in Arkansas. They’re both normal guys from humble beginnings.”
[...] Intimates of both men say the real story behind today’s event is the private friendship that has developed between the ex-president and a governor who would like to be president. The two have met, traded war stories, talked on the phone, all inside the four years since Clinton campaigned hard on behalf of then-Gov. Jon Corzine, the incumbent Christie beat in 2009.
