President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron will sit for a joint interview Tuesday — to talk hoops with CBS Sports basketball analyst Clark Kellogg.
Cameron will be in Washington for a two-day visit that includes a state dinner at the White House on Wednesday. But as we reported last week, the pair are first scheduled to attend a first-round game in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament between Mississippi Valley State and Western Kentucky in Dayton, Ohio.
They will be interviewed at halftime of the game, which starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on truTV.
Obama’s basketball bona fides are well established; he regularly selects his brackets for the NCAA tournament on television. But it’s probably also not a coincidence that he’s taking Cameron to a game being played in a key swing state just a week after Mitt Romney won Ohio’s Republican presidential primary.
No telling whether Kellogg will stray beyond the hardcourt to talk politics or other pressing issues.
