Obama wants Cubs title before he leaves office

President Barack Obama put a little pressure on the Cubs to win a World Series in the next three years. During the Blackhawks' visit to the White House on Monday to celebrate their 2013 Stanley Cup championship, Obama invited the other Chicago teams to the nation's capital.

"To the Bulls, Bears, Cubs, White Sox -- I am term-limited, so you guys have got to get moving," Obama said. "I need to see you here soon. Championships belong in Chicago."

Obama's term in office runs through 2016.
