About Obama's picks

Barack Obama got his pick for Commerce Secretary on the third try. That would be former Washington Gov. Gary Locke, who was confirmed today.

He's doing not quite so well on his picks for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, where he's picked 33 out of the 48 games thus far. If you've done better, feel free to gloat.

But it would seem that Coach K's suggestion that the president has better ways to spend his time than filling out his brackets might have been misdirected...it seems as though Obama didn't spend that much time, after all.
