Zenmaster Obama?

CNN's John King appears to be unwinding with a little sports after the marathon 2008 election season. In addition to demonstrating the Magic Wall to Ahmad Rashad on NBA TV on Tuesday, King was also recently interviewed by the Sports Business Daily. I thought this was the most interesting Q/A from the interview:
    Q: What pro or college coach/manager reminds you of Obama and McCain?

    King: Obama's like PHIL JACKSON. You know, live the moment. Block out everything else and be in the present. That is Barack Obama. And I think that McCain in some ways is like BOBBY KNIGHT. He wants to win. He has this appetite to win, and sometimes that appetite to win comes across as crusty and grumpy because he's so competitive.
You know, it's nothing earth-shattering and I had never thought of it before, but I think that the Obama-Phil comparison actually makes a little bit of sense. Beyond both being lefthanders (in politics as well as hoops!), both men seem to have a preternatural serenity which is uncommon in their respective fields. Jackson, by the way, contributed the maximum $2300 to the Obama campaign, and rather early, on June 30, 2007.
