Obama's Bracket: President Makes 2011 NCAA Tournament Picks, Likes 1-Seeds

When you're President Barack Obama, you have to make decisions that are measured, popular and logical. This applies to foreign policy, the economy and, it seems, filling out your 2011 NCAA Tournament Bracket.

The President filled out his brackets for the 2011 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments through, predicting a Men’s Final Four of Duke, Kansas, Ohio State and Pittsburgh and a Women’s Final Four of Baylor, Connecticut, Stanford and Tennessee. Just in case you're keeping track, every single one of those teams is a 1-seed.
