Chris Christie and his running mate, Kim Guadagno, stopped in Newark’s tony Forest Hill neighborhood last night, a neighborhood historically bluer than my jeans.

The crowd was a healthy mix of lifelong Democrats, including a fair amount of Obama supporters and voters, and party-line Republicans, but you wouldn’t know it from the way everyone meshed together and happily celebrated before, during, and after his speech.

Watch for yourself – it’s absolutely worth the twenty minutes.
