WOODRIDGE, Va.--President Barack Obama--a South Sider and White Sox fan--told a crowd at a campaign rally here that he was looking forward to a White Sox-Nationals World Series.

Both teams are having great seasons. That let Obama be loyal to his home team--and play to a local crowd.

Obama was moved to talk baseball because the rally was held at a baseball stadium--Pfitzner Stadium the home of the Potomac Nationals, a minor league team.

Said Obama, "Well, it is great to be here in Pfitzner Stadium, home of the Potomac Nationals. I want to congratulate the Washington Nationals for bringing playoff baseball to D.C. You guys are looking good. I am looking forward to a White Sox Nationals World Series. It's going to happen. White Sox are still in first place. But I got to admit, you guys are looking a little better right now. You guys are looking very good."
