White House spokesman Jay Carney confirms that Mr. Obama put Mr. Springsteen on the phone with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie while the president and the Boss were flying to Columbus from Madison, Wis. on Air Force One.

Mr. Christie, a Republican, is well known as one of the biggest Bruce fans ever, but he’s not gotten love from Mr. Springsteen, a die-hard Democrat, in the past. Mr. Springsteen is notorious for not inviting Mr. Christie backstage that the more than 100 concerts that his No. 1 fan has attended.

But in these days of bipartisan bonhomie between Mr. Obama and Mr. Christie post-storm, who better to serve as yenta between the Boss and his fan? The president!

Mr. Christie promptly relayed the fact of the phone call to reporters. When asked, Mr. Carney confirmed: “When POTUS told the governor he had someone who wanted to speak with him, Springsteen, who was using the handset across the table from the president, said, “Governor, this is Bruce.”
