Scott Walker, center, and Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt, upon his arrival in Green Bay, Wis. Obama, a Chicago native, predicted the Chicago Bears would beat Green Bay in the NFC Championship game. But now he's swallowing hard and throwing a Super Bowl party at the White House anyhow, in a biconference and bipartisan celebration of the nation's biggest sporting event. (AP Photo/J.
