The White House says President Barack Obama has commended the Eagles for giving quarterback Michael Vick a second chance after his release from prison. Obama spokesman Bill Burton says the president told Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie that while he condemns the crimes Vick was convicted of, he believes people who have paid for their crimes should have the opportunity to contribute to society again. The president also applauded the Eagles' plan to install wind turbines and solar panels at their stadium to reduce energy consumption.
