Obama post election

Now that Barack Obama has been nominated as the President of the United States he has turned his attention away from foreign policy and is concentrating solely on sports. While his favorite sport is known to be basketball his attention has been elsewhere in the sporting world.

On the Monday Night Football the day before the election, Obama mentioned his support for a playoff system in college football. He was not exactly taking a chance by saying so, but now that the election is over he is pushing for this change far more then for any change to social security.

Also since the election, he was video tapped discussing the Arizona Cardinals with John McCain. Obama was very impressed with the passing game they have going, which to any NFL fans should not be too much of a surprise.

Also he has been pushing for the International Olympic Committee to host the games in his hometown of Chicago. Sports has been the thing that the president elect has been most concerned about, but I'm not to say that is a bad thing.
