(CNN) – In interviews with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, 1992 U.S. Olympic “Dream team” members Magic Johnson and Charles Barkley played political pundits and addressed the much-talked-about possibility of the a Democratic “dream ticket” involving rivals Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
“My dream team would be Obama-Clinton, not Clinton-Obama,” explained Charles Barkley who is also an analyst for TNT.
“I want Barack to be president. …I just think we need a new face, we need a new leader,” Barkley added.
“I hope really that both of them end up on the same ticket,” said Clinton supporter Magic Johnson in a separate interview with Blitzer.
“I would really love seeing that and I think a lot of other people would love seeing that as well,” he added.
Although Johnson said he would support Obama if the first-term senator won the Democratic nomination, the NBA legend likened a ticket with Clinton as the presidential nominee and Obama as the vice presidential nominee to “Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic all playing together on the dream team.”
Barkley likewise told Blitzer that he would support Clinton if she were the Democratic nominee and that if Obama became vice president “that’s good.”
