Post 1600

News is out on the future plans of Barack Obama.

No, we aren't talking about what to do with Obamacare.  Or Syria.  Or Iran.  Or Russia.  And not about North Korea, unemployment, stagnant wages, tepid economic results or national defense.

It turns out that Obama wants to transition from the most powerful man in the world, (though some say that's now Vladimir Putin), to host of SportsCenter.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg's DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale.

At the end of the conversation -- which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran -- Obama revealed what's at the top of his bucket list post-White House: "At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10 list," Obama quipped as he turned to Disney's Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.
 That day can't come soon enough.  Even the prospect of President Biden doesn't faze me.
