President gives edge to Manning, Colts
Obama's Super Bowl prediction was based on his opinion that the Colts have "perhaps the best quarterback in history."
"Peyton Manning is unbelievable," the president told CBS' Katie Couric during a live pre-game interview.
Still, Obama says he has a soft spot for New Orleans, "mainly because of what the city has gone through over these last several years" since Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.
Obama says he may be biased against the Colts, since they beat his hometown Chicago Bears in the Super Bowl in 2007.
