Change We Can Bracket In

By now, everyone's seen the president's bracket, released to more fanfare than about half of his cabinet nominations on ESPN today. He picked UNC naturally, like all right-thinking Americans[*], and went with a pretty conventional Final Four. Kevin Drum points out something interesting, though - Obama has the Pac-10 going 1-6.

I'm sure the Pac-10ers are chalking that up to East Coast Presidential Bias, but here's the thing. Obama has an inside source in that particular league.

Meanwhile, I fully support this sentiment from the president:

“This year don’t embarrass me in front of the nation, all right?” Obama said, addressing his words to coach Roy Williams and the Tar Heels. “I’m counting on you.”
