Christie on Sandy: 'I am not going to play politics'

(CNN) – A staunch Republican, and a top surrogate for Mitt Romney, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie crossed the aisle this week and praised President Barack Obama for his support and handling of the federal response

"This is much more important than any election, Piers. This is the livelihood of the people in my state," Christie said Tuesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." "When the president does things that deserve praise, I will give him praise. And when the president does things that deserve scorn, I'll give him scorn."

Sandy reminds us of climate change and other forgotten campaign issues

Washington (CNN) – Superstorm Sandy's ability to wreak havoc on the most populated parts of the country this week has pointed out a noticeable gap in the 2012 presidential election - how little the candidates have focused on climate change, the environment and other under-covered issues.

"With flooding in NYC and 3 feet of snow in W VA, isn't it time for candidates to address climate change and extreme weather," tweeted Darrell West, a director at the Brookings Institution, a public policy think tank.
