WASHINGTON—Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) told NBCs Today Show Ann Curry that when he stays awake nights it is not worrying about IF he is going to win the upcoming primaries, its concern about what he will be doing as President.

In an interview broadcast Tuesday morning, Obama said, When I lose sleep at night, it is not because I’m worrying about what’s going to happen in Pennsylvania or Indiana or how we’re going to resolve this contest. When I lose sleep at night it’s because I think about being president and all the challenges that we have to face out there.”

On smaller matters, Curry ran Obama through some quick questions and came up with the following preferences:

Tea over coffee; Rolling Stones over Beatles; Lincoln favorite president; yes to God exists; prays once or twice a day; empathy best thing mother taught him; White Sox over Cubs and basketball over bowling.

During the bus tour in Pennsylvania, Obama staged a photo op at a bowling alley to record him bowling. Usually Obamas basketball games are not open to photo sessions.
