WASHINGTON — President Obama told ESPN Tuesday that he’s “feeling good” about his March Madness picks. So good that he’s “ready to win some money” in the time-honored tradition of the tournament pool.
“I’m feeling good,” Obama told ESPN’s Andy Katz in a behind-the-scenes video posted to ESPN.com. “I’m ready to win some money here.”
Obama’s full bracket will be revealed on ESPN on Wednesday. National Journal crunched the numbers on Obama’s previous March Madness brackets and found his predictions of a strong performance may be a bit optimistic.

I hope sarcasm can come through via text because, wow that was so very interesting hearing the back story behind Obama picking a bracket… this video could have been about 5 seconds long to tell the viewers that “hey, you can watch Obama choose his bracket on ESPN. Sorry for wasting your time”
