President Obama gets a Green Bay Packers welcome in Wisconsin

By Cindy Boren

How good a politician is President Barack Obama? So good that when Air Force One touched down in Wisconsin and he was handed an autographed Green Bay Packers jersey, the Chicaco Bears fan grinned.

Sure, he's probably thinking, "I've got just the place for this," but he might as well get over the Bears' loss to the Packers in the NFC championship game quickly because at least one Packer, Charles Woodson, seems intent on seeing him again, writing on that No. 21 jersey:

"To President Obama
See you at the White House
Go Packers"

That's a little subtler dig than injured linebacker Nick Barnett delivered.

He must be on his way to declare his love for the packers baby!!!less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone

I suspect President Obama wants to remain in D.C. for an additional 6 years. If so, he should show some loyalty to the home team in D.C., even though they are painful to watch.
