As if President Obama weren't having enough issues lately, Afghanistan escalation, dropping public opinion numbers, the Nobel Peace Prize, etc., Now comes the left field oddity he probably never could have predicted: Tiger Woods.
The January Golf Digest cover story, 10 Tips Obama can Take From Tiger, was written over the summer and the issue went to press in November before Tiger's world fell apart, but it's still sure to be fodder for late-night jokes for a time.
An interesting quote from the issue:
"Woods is a good role model ... because he has always been able to pull himself together after setbacks. Woods never does anything that would make himself look ridiculous."
The idea was that Obama could take a page from the master tactician's golf game in dealing with adversity. Let's just all hop that the extreme crisis management Tiger's working on right now isn't a skill the president has to put into use anytime soon.
