President-Elect Obama Get's It Right
Did you catch the Barak and Michelle Obama interview last night on 60 Minutes? Mr. and Mrs. Obama answered a variety of questions from the historical significance of his election to the family's selection of the new first dog. It was a good interview.
But it was the last question of the interview that gave me hope for our future. Steve Kroft asked Mr. Obama, "As president of the United States, what can you do, or what do you plan to do, about getting a college football playoff for the national championship?" His response was--
I think any sensible person would say that if you've got a bunch of teams who play throughout the season, and many of them have one loss or two losses, there's no clear decisive winner that we should be creating a playoff system. Eight teams. That would be three rounds, to determine a national champion... I don't know any serious fan of college football who has disagreed with me on this. So, I'm gonna throw my weight around a little bit. I think it's the right thing to do.
There you have it! Our new president-elect shows that he has the intelligence and conviction to assume the role as leader of the free world. I now wait with great anticipation for him to launch the first air strike on BCS headquarters!
