President Obama's reelection campaign manager sent a message to supporters Sunday to remind them to watch the president's appearance that evening on "60 Minutes."

Amid criticism from some Republicans that Obama has "pounded his chest a little too much" to boast of Osama bin Laden's killing last weekend, Jim Messina emailed Obama supporters to ask them to tune into the president's first sit-down interview since last Sunday's operation.

"Just wanted to make sure you knew that "60 Minutes" is airing an interview with President Obama tonight," campaign manager Jim Messina wrote in a brief email to supporters. "It's the only interview he gave this week, so I hope you take the time to tune in to CBS at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT."

Obama's spoken repeatedly of the need for America to not "spike the football" in reaction to bin Laden's killing, citing it as a reason not to release gruesome photos of bin Laden's corpse.

"I think Americans and people around the world are glad that he's gone," Obama will say in tonight's interview. "But we don't need to spike the football."
