Obama to Palin: Let's Shoot Some Hoops!


Barack Obama is ready to take on Sarah Palin -- on the campaign trail and on the basketball court!

During an ABC interview this weekend, the Democratic nominee challenged GOP VP hopeful Sarah Palin -- known to her high school court as Sarah Barracuda -- to a game of hoops! "You know, I would play her a game of horse," Obama tells reporter George Stephanopoulos. "She looks like she's got some game. On the basketball court, I think I'd stand up pretty well."

There is one arena where the Illinois senator isn't ready to take on Palin -- the shooting range. "I know she's a sharpshooter, and I know that -- I probably wouldn't do target practice with her," Obama said. "I think she'd be a better shot than me."
