Courtesy of C-SPAN, here’s a video of President Barack Obama’s full comments when the World Cup champions visited the White House on Tuesday (Oct. 27).

The video is about 18 minutes.

Some of the president’s best lines:

“It was a victory that took all 23 players. It took took Christy Rampone’s leadership, Alex Morgan’s playmaking, Heather O’Reilly’s game face.

“It took Becky Sauerbrunn’s quiet dominance and Abby Wambach’s not-so-quiet dominance.”

“Carli’s performance was so good that by the time the game was over, someone had changed her title on Wikipedia from midfielder to president of the United States — which, by the way, the job is about to open up.

“What’s another candidate in the mix? I guarantee you Carli knows more about being president than some of the folks who are running.”

“This team taught all America’s children that ‘playing like a girl’ means you’re a bad-ass.”
