President Obama Played Pickup Basketball With Scottie Pippen Today and Won by 20 Points

We're still not sure whether or not President Obama is going win the 2012 Election tonight. But, we do know that he already won once today. Early this afternoon, he teamed up with Scottie Pippen and Illinois treasurer Alexi Giannoulias to play in a pickup basketball game at the Hope Athletic Center in Chicago. The game also featured Oregon State basketball coach Craig Robinson (Michelle Obama's brother), Education Secretary Arne Duncan, White House Assistant Chef Sam Kass, Reggie Love, and several others. And, not surprisingly, the Commander-in-Chief won by 20 (thanks, Scottie!).

Will that help him seal the deal tonight? Er, that's still TBD. But, if nothing else, it helped him take his mind off things for an hour today. Score.
