President Obama is using the bully pulpit of the White House blog to address a pressing issue: the Presidential picks for the NCAA basketball tournament. Last year, Obama’s picks were suspect for favoring teams from key primary states, so we’ll see how he does without election year pressures hanging over his head. His final: UNC over Louisville. Sad to see the Illini didn’t get any hometown love. He reviewed his picks with this week on ESPN.
UPDATE: It should be noted that the President of the United States of America correctly picked UNC as the winning team. However, bad picks in the early rounds probably killed his chances of collecting any cash from the West Wing tourney pool.
