Daily DC Item: Obama Makes His Pick For March Madness


Pete Souza for

On the day millions stop working and start tuning into the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, I thought I’d let you know that you won’t be the only one tuning in. Tuesday afternoon Obama met with ESPN’s Andy Katz to show America his picks for the tournament. He even said he’ll be keeping track of the scores as the tournament starts up. “I think the chances are high,” President Obama answered when asked by Katz if he’ll be sneaking a peek at the games.

In Katz’s related story on ESPN you can see that President Obama sought council from his cabinet, most notable from Press secretary Robert Gibbs. ESPN even managed to get Obama’s original handwritten bracket so you can keep track of his picks at home. If you want to see all of his picks you should watch the video linked below, however you should know that he has already called out his top pick to, “not embarrass me in front of The Nation.” I wonder what kind of pressure you have to be feeling when The President tells you to win.

All I can say is that Obama is the coolest President ever. However I thought he just as cool when he filled out a bracket last year.

Watch the video of Barack Obama making his NCAA picks!
