      President Obama predicts World Series

      WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) - President Barack Obama is offering his prediction for the upcoming World Series. Obama says during a campaign stop in Virginia that he is "looking forward to a White Sox-Nationals World Series."

      The president says, "It's going to happen."

      The former Illinois senator is a longtime Chicago White Sox baseball fan. The president congratulated supporters in the Virginia suburbs of Washington the day after the Washington Nationals clinched a playoff berth.

      The White Sox are currently in first place in the American League Central. Obama spoke at Pfitzner Stadium, home of the minor league Potomac Nationals, a minor league affiliate of the Nationals.
