Lisa Leslie Goes Obama

Don't accuse the U.S. women's basketball team of shying away from politics in the run-up to the Olympics. Lisa Leslie came to her media session yesterday wearing a jacket with an Obama for President button. She said she bought it for her mom, "because we're in Chicago, and they're on sale. I don't see them in L.A."

She said she hadn't had a chance to drop it off to her mom, which is why it was on her jacket, but that didn't mean she had to wear it during her media session. I was (pleasantly) shocked no one asked her to take the jacket off. She's also donated to his campaign, like dozens of other high-profile athletes.

"I'm a Barack fan, put it out there," she said. "I like Obama. I'm for him. Vote Obama: The people's choice."
