Obama Plays It Cautious; Panders To NC

The White House has released Barack Obama's handwritten grid of picks for the NCAA Men's Tournament. His predictions are incredibly conservative -- in the "wuss" meaning of the word, not the political meaning. Almost exclusively favorites throughout.

His Final Four: Louisville, Memphis, Pitt, and North Carolina. That's two states he lost (and has no chance in for 2012), and two states he won.

North Carolina was a big win for him in '08, but it was a squeaker, so guess what school he's got winning the championship?

He slightly dissed #1 seed UConn (a gimme state for him), and #2 seed Oklahoma -- the state that gave him the largest margin of defeat in the country. So there, Sooners!
