During the Commander-in-Chief Ball, did you see Obama's interview with all those military folks from Chicago?
Obama was like "White Sox or Cubs?" He's being televised on multiple networks live, and THAT is what he wants to ask them about. It's a question only a real fan cares about.
And they all (all but one) kept saying "Cubs," and you could see Obama was playfully miffed. "Terrible," he muttered. I love that.
