Charles Barkley interviews Obama

Oh, this could be fun

Hall of Famer and NBA analyst Charles Barkley, never shy to express his opinion on any subject, interviews President Barack Obama tonight at 7 as part of TNT's pregame coverage to the All-Star Game. The interview, taped Thursday, touches on a myriad of topics including health care reform, the administration's recently announced "My Brother's Keeper" initiative, and the president's favorite sport, basketball. In fact, the president weighs in on maybe the hottest debate in the game: LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan: "Now, I'm a Chicago guy, and Mike will always be the guy, for me, just because that was a magical moment for the city. … LeBron, when you look at him, you think he might be able to play at a high level for another seven, eight, 10 years. … In terms of every aspect of the game, LeBron has a chance to be as good as anybody." That's not turrrible, Mr. President.
