How are Obama’s picks holding up?

Wondering about the president's picks?

No, not his picks for cabinet or subcabinet posts, but the really important ones. His picks in the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament.

President Obama currently has picked 16 correct, as of Friday afternoon. Respectable, to be sure, but that puts him tied for 69th in the newspaper's bracket pool on the CBS Web site.

A more complete discussion of his picks, and standing, will come at the end of the weekend.

The Spokesman-Review's political team keeps a critical eye on local, state and national politics.
