New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says the best part of his job is going to New York City because they close the Lincoln Tunnel for him.

That was the governor's joking response to a question posed by a second grader at a town hall meeting Wednesday.

"You get to drive right through!" Christie joked, "No traffic. It's the best. I love going to New York now. I used to hate it because I would sit in traffic."

Governor Christie also gave a more serious answer, saying he loves that every day he has the chance to change people's lives for the better.
