Mr. "Cool" President Obama will spend Election Day playing basketball according to the Washington Post.

The president will observe his most time-honored Election Day ritual.

Former White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, who has joined the campaign on its final day to travel with President Obama, said his former boss sent an e-mail to his former personal aide, Reggie Love, to start organizing his regular pickup basketball game in Chicago for Tuesday.

It might be a better idea for Obama to handle the ongoing Hurricane Sandy crisis instead. After all, thousands of freezing Americans with no electricity, water or heat, isn't exactly "optimal."
