Obama to Redskins: Change name

President Obama told the Associated press this weekend, If I were the owner of the team and I knew that there was a name of my team – even if it had a storied history – that was offending a sizeable group of people, I'd think about changing it.

Obama might change Redskins name if he were owner

Former Clinton adviser and Washington Redskins attorney Lanny Davis responded on behalf of the team, saying president Obama, "has better things to worry about".

Is he right?

Paul Begala is a former adviser to president Bill Clinton and Marc Lamont Hill is an Associate Professor at Columbia University.
