In the midst of a national health care plan controversy, Barack Obama has found himself flustered by the “Madness.” After 2 days of the NCAA Tournament, Obama is in pretty nice shape, correctly picking 25 of the first 32 winners in Round One, with each of his Final Four teams still in tact (Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky, and Villanova.)
In a generally conservative bracket filled with many safe picks, Mr. President has chosen Kansas to defeat Kentucky in the championship, one year after nailing the winner, North Carolina (outperforming 80% of the country).
His most impressive picks thus far were #13 Murray State knocking off #4 Vanderbilt and #12 Cornell defeating #5 Temple. However, with Georgetown getting upset in the first round, Obama has already lost one of his Elite 8 teams. The Campus Socialite will be sure to continue to follow the “Barack-et.” Check it out below and see how yours compares.
