Pickens challenges Obama on energy—and cardio

T. Boone Pickens, the octegenarian founder of BP Capital, responded to the leaked pictures and video of President Barack Obama's workout with his own exhibition—and a challenge.

"I challenge Pres @BarackObama to a 1 hr workout. My cardio is better," he tweeted, adding that the two will "work out energy plan for America."


Although some media outlets have been critical of Obama's moves, Vegas has thus far remained mum on the odds for whose cardiovascular ability would prove best.
