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.”
