Talk about a pregame match: Bill O’Reilly of Fox News will interview President Obama on Feb. 6 -- Super Bowl Sunday -- before the network’s NFL championship game broadcast, marking the first sit-down interview between the two since Obama’s presidential run in 2008. (During previous years’ pregame presidential interviews, Obama has spoken with NBC’s Matt Lauer and CBS’ Katie Couric.)

The announcement comes during a week when O’Reilly insisted that if the GOP ‘oppose Obama all the time, the GOP will fail.’

Are things getting a little friendlier between them?
