Obama Picks Final Four On Raleigh's Buzz

Forget the economy, the war, crime, or any of those other issues; the big question for BARACK OBAMA is who his NCAA Final Four picks are. At least, that's what he was asked this morning on MCCLATCHEY Sports WRBZ-A (850 THE BUZZ)/RALEIGH-DURHAM. OBAMA's picks: NORTH CAROLINA, KANSAS, UCLA and STANFORD (three #1 seeds and a three seed), with UNC his pick to go all the way (incidentally, he was on a NORTH CAROLINA station and the NORTH CAROLINA primary just happens to be coming up on MAY 6th).
The candidate also revealed that he once lost a game of H-O-R-S-E to former rival candidate JOHN EDWARDS on the latter's home court. OBAMA played basketball at PUNAHOU HIGH SCHOOL in HAWAII and OCCIDENTAL COLLEGE before transferring to COLUMBIA, and continues to play pickup hoops today.

OBAMA also made an appearance this morning on CBS Sports WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA, fielding questions from ANGELO CATALDI in advance of PENNSYLVANIA's primary.
