President Obama has a few more years to go before his Presidency/political career is up but he already has his eyes set on a job he wants when he does retire.

The President recently made a trip to L.A. to attend charity fundraisers for Magic Johnson and a few others. While in the city, he also attended a meeting with high entertainment moguls while he was in L.A and revealed to the group what he would like to do when he’s done with his Presidency….host Sportscenter!

If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg's DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale.

At the end of the conversation -- which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran -- Obama revealed what's at the top of his bucket list post-White House: "At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10 list," Obama quipped as he turned to Disney's Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.

The highlights countdown can feature everything from major sports to bull fighting to high school basketball. Other than having a good laugh, Iger apparently didn't respond.

"Everyone had a good giggle," says one person who attended.

The private meeting with Iger featured other moguls, including Disney's Alan Horn, Fox's Jim Gianopulos, Sony's Amy Pascal, and CBS' Leslie Moonves.

Yes!! Do it! I'm sure Sportscenter won't turn him down.
