image for Herman Cain challenges Barack Obama to a One-on-One Basketball Game

WASHINGTON DC - In an unprecedented political gesture, Republican primary contender Herman Cain did for the first time what no one has ever done in the history of American presidency, he challenged Barack Obama to a one-on-one basketball game.

White House officials said that President Barack Obama saw this challenge as an opportunity to charm people before the official presidential race would begin. He also wanted to begin earning the votes of the unemployed so he decided to invite a number of unemployed American citizens to watch.

Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden thought it would be 'cool' to send Evites to all the professional basketball players of the NBA since 'none of them are doing anything.' Biden was also hoping that the players would return the favor and give them free tickets to all their games.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney considers it a noble thing for Obama to want to entertain the unemployed and assured the media that all 450 professional unemployed basketball players would attend the game. He also thinks that Obama has a 'better chance in beating Cain in a basketball game then a rhetorical debate at this point.'

ABC reached out to President Obama and promised that if he chose their network then they will be sure to make it as successful a project as the Lebron James' Decision Time.

If all goes according to plan the two will play next Friday, October 21st.
