President Obama's Final Four and What His Days Must Be Like
One of the headlines on ESPN.com is that President Obama lost his first Final Four team last night when Butler upset Pitt. Fortunately for the President, Duke survived Michigan earlier today, while Ohio State folded, spindled and mutilated George Mason and Kansas plays tonight. You can read the article here.
And that got me wondering about international diplomacy. Imagine if the White House created at least a Sweet 16 bracket of foreign governments who are a royal pain in the ass to Washington or worse. Who would be in his Final Four? My bet would be Iran, Libya, North Korea and Cuba. Perhaps also making the Elite 8, as it were, would be Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan. You also never know where Russia would fall. The possibilities are endless.
Of course, the President discussed his hoops bracket with ESPN. Many pundits might speculate as to his troubling sovereign nation Final Four, and even WikiLeaks doesn't know for sure. But it would be interesting to know.
