President Obama Interviewed On ESPN's "Monday Night Football"
"It's interesting. Political reporters are a lot like sports reporters," President Obama said in an interview with ESPN during halftime of Monday Night Football the night before the election. "You lose a game, and you're a bum. You win a game, you're a god.
"And, the truth is, just like in sports, in politics, we're all human," Obama said. "We make mistakes. Sometimes we perform well. But the key is just to stay focused on what it is that you're doing. And in sports, it's about winning championships. Interesting -- in politics, it's not winning elections. It's making sure that you're delivering for the folks who sent you."
