Obama Makes A Nate Silver Joke (VIDEO)

Even President Obama is getting in on the post-election Nate Silver lovefest.

Obama gave a shoutout to the polling guru, who is lapping up apologies and accolades from all over the place in the wake of his almost completely accurate forecasting of the 2012 race, during his annual pardoning of two White House turkeys.

"The winners of the White House turkey pardon were chosen through a highly competitive online vote, and once again Nate Silver nailed it," Obama joked. "The guy's amazing. He predicted these guys would win."
