Obama's March Madness Picks


No, we don’t mean “mad” like The Rock Obama, we’re talking about the President’s predictions for the upcoming NCAA tournament. ESPN.com just published the presidential bracket, and Obama’s got UNC to win it! If we knew more about college basketball, we’d try and make some joke here, relating his picks to his stance on foreign policy, or something. But you’ll have to live with the SNL reference up top. (Although, as the accompanying article points out: Obama does maintain loyalty throughout almost the whole tournament to Pittsburgh, a city that turned Pennsylvania for him in the election, and has Temple upsetting ASU from McCain’s home state.) Check out Obama’s original bracket for some possible insight on what rough drafts of his speeches look like. Then start your office pools and create your own bracket. Tournament play begins this Friday.
