Even Barack Obama is watching Jeremy Lin

We all know that United States president Barack Obama is a pretty big basketball fan, so it's not surprising that he's been noticing the play of Knicks guard Jeremy Lin.

White House press secretary Jay Carney recently revealed that the president has been keeping tabs on Lin and was abuzz when he hit last night's game winner against Toronto:
Carney says Lin’s game-winning 3-pointer at the end of Tuesday night’s game against Toronto was the subject of conversation with the president aboard Marine One on Wednesday morning.

Carney says Lin’s success is “just a great story, and the president was saying as much this morning.” He says it’s a story that “transcends the sport itself.”
No word yet if we will see an Obama/Lin ticket for the 2012 election.
