President Obama a hit as a TV broadcaster

January 30, 2010 | 12:55 pm


Barack Obama, commander in chief of the free world, gave notice that if things don't work out in politics then he just might end up behind the microphone doing basketball commentary.

President Obama spent several minutes today during the second half of the Georgetown-Duke basketball game at the Verizon Center in Washington with broadcast team Verne Lundquist and Clark Kellogg. He provided insightful analysis as well as getting off a few jabs and zingers, such as:

"After retirement, I'm coming after your job, Clark. I'm just letting you know. So you either have three more years or seven more years."

"I went to the Republican House caucus just yesterday to prove that I could go to my right once in a while."
