With Joe Biden and John Kerry holding down the international fort, President Obama fulfilled an annual obligation:

President Barack Obama, the nation’s first basketball fan, took marker to bracket with ESPN again at the White House and selected Michigan State to defeat defending champion Louisville in the NCAA men’s tournament title game.

The path Obama took to arrive at his national champion, an event that has come to be known as “Barack-etology,” was revealed on SportsCenter at 9:30 a.m. ET Wednesday. It is the sixth consecutive year he’s made them with ESPN’s Andy Katz.

“Tom Izzo is a great tournament coach,” Obama said. “I’ve got Michigan State going all the way. … He know how to motivate folks and he knows how to coach. My pick: Michigan State. Bring it home for me. It’s been a while since I’ve won my pool.”

Based on past “Baracketology” national champion predictions, Michigan State might want to request a waiver.

As a result of the U.S. sanctions, there are eleven Putin cronies who will be unable to place Vegas bets on the tournament. If that doesn’t force an end to Russia’s regional aggression, nothing will.

Update:

Forget about Obama’s picks — Putin’s picks are far more important.
