I don’t know about his choice for veep, but Obama knows what he’s talking about in at least one regard. Here’s a snip from a transcript of an interview with ESPN’s Stuart Scott airing at 5 PM tonight:

Scott: “If the Cubs and the White Sox both make it to the World Series?

Obama: “I would be going.”

Scott: “Who would you root for?”

Obama: “Oh, that’s easy. White Sox. I’m not one of these fair weather fans. You go to Wrigley Field, you have a beer, beautiful people up there. People aren’t watching the game. It’s not serious. White Sox, that’s baseball. Southside.”

Has Obama just put his Chicago vote in jeopardy? 

In other Sox news, Joe Crede has come off the disabled list after a full month; DeWayne Wise has been put on it with a strained adductor.
