Next game date: November. Obama plays last primary day basketball at Chicago's East Bank Club

| 3 Comments

WASHINGTON---Likely Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was seen leaving Chicago's East Bank Club on Tuesday after playing a pick-up game of basketball, which has become a primary day tradition. Today of course, was more important because it is the last primary game day--and the day when Obama clinches the nomination with 2,118 delegates. The next election game day Obama will be in November--when Obama faces off against presumptive GOP nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Az.)

The Obama East Bank Club report: He was seen leaving the club--where he worked out all the time before he started running for president--at about 11:55 a.m. Chicago time. He was sipping what looked like a health drink; he was dressed in a dark blue track suit. Obama exchanged greetings with a club member who ran into him as he was departing'. "He looked very very relaxed and tired....he seemed in no great rush," to leave, with his gait "just a gentle stroll."
