The Most Fun Post of the Day Has Nothing to Do With 2012 – Chris Christie vs. the Nets. Cory Booker vs. the Devils – Sport and politics and daydreaming about Guv Race 2013 in New Jersey – Chris Good writes: “The spats have showcased each politician’s style. In his Nets comments, Christie lived up to the reputation he’s earned for bluntly dismissing his political antagonists off the cuff. Booker, who undertook a hunger strike in 1999, and lived in a tent in front of a housing project to protest drug distribution, lived up to his own reputation for hands-on advocacy.” http://abcn.ws/JmtRLh

College Tour – From Mary Bruce - While the president did not call out the presumptive GOP nominee by name, he drew a sharp contrast between his background and that of Mitt Romney, who comes from a wealthier family. “This is something Michelle and I know about firsthand,” Obama said. “I didn’t just read about this… I didn’t just get some talking points about this. I didn’t just get a policy briefing on this.” “Check this out, all right? I’m the president of the United States. We only finished paying off our student loans about eight years ago,” he said to laughter from the crowd of roughly 8,000. “That wasn’t that long ago.” While young voters still overwhelmingly support the president — Obama enjoys a substantial 60 to 34 percent lead over Romney — their interest has waned since 2008. http://abcn.ws/JY8Q6A

Young Voters Matter – Amy Walter: “Check out the huge improvement he made over John Kerry, who lost to George W. Bush in 2004, among this group of voters in key swing states.
While the percentage of the youth vote remained relatively stable, Obama’s percentage of the young vote doubled and even tripled in some key states.” http://abcn.ws/HZO0Es

Jon Karl’s Light Bulb Beat – It costs about 100 times more than an old fashioned one, but a new $50 LED light bulb is not as crazy as it sounds – the new bulb can last up to 30 years, is just as bright as the old-fashioned kind, and use a fraction of the electricity. But even if you do not buy one, you have already helped pay for it. The Department of Energy awarded the bulb’s maker, Philips, a $10 million prize for developing the “affordable” light bulb of the future. http://yhoo.it/I3H8Vg
