Obama, Cameron to go to basketball game

President Barack Obama, a well-known basketball fan, will treat British Prime Minister David Cameron to a little March Madness Tuesday as the two head to Ohio to catch an NCAA men's tournament basketball game.

There will be two games tipping off the tournament in Dayton, Ohio, a swing state. During halftime of the first game, Western Kentucky versus Mississippi Valley State, the two leaders will conduct a joint interview.

The leaders' trip to the game comes as Obama launched his new tournament "bracket challenge" on his campaign website.

Obama is asking those who visit the website to predict who will win the college basketball championship and to compare their picks against his.

    And there you go again AMERICAN lst, *assumming* tax dollars paid for his night off! Our POTUS works 24/7 so if he wants a night off he deserves it. Also if you figure his h8760 hrs, take his pay and divide those hours into that, hes on the low end!

    At least Kennedy had the brains to hide his ne'er do well behavior. He can sing but he is tone deaf
