Obama Picks Final Four in March Madness

President Barack Obama made his final four predictions on ESPN Wednesday morning (March 16), saying the Kansas Jayhawks would beat the North Carolina Tar Heels in the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship game.

He said the other two teams making the Final Four would be Michigan State and Texas A&M.

“The President was a Cinderella as a candidate eight years ago, but he has gone with the favorites in each year of his presidency,” said Katz of the presidential picks.

President Obama has made a pick every year since taking office, with a record of 1-6, only getting it right in 2009 when he chose North Carolina. Watch the video of today's picks here.
