A post I wrote for the Temple News blog, Broad & Cecil: Barack’s Bracket: 3.21.08
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has taken a bit of time out of his uber-busy campaigning schedule and $10 out of his campaign fund to fill out a bracket for the NCAA tournament.
He shunned Temple, picking Michigan State to win in the first round. Who cares if he was right?
His final four picks: North Carolina over Kansas and UCLA over Pitt, with North Carolina winning it all.
CBS News has further analysis of his picks and their political connotations, here.
