Meanwhile, thousands of others filed into the 17,500-seat  facility in anticpation of hearing Obama make his case for, among other things, Corzine's re-election. The event had to be moved from Rutgers University in New Brunswick after organizers were swamped by requests tickets.  After this, the POTUS is heading to make a speech at the NAACP awards dinner in Manhattan.
