President Obama unveils his final presidential bracket selections
Since 2009, President Barack Obama has famously revealed his NCAA Tournament picks on ESPN. This year, in the final year of his presidency, he seems to be playing it safe and going chalk.
He's taking No. 1 overall seeded Kansas to win it all.
Why is that, you might ask? Well, POTUS is giving full disclosure here. He just doesn't know what else to do.

Unfortunately for the Jayhawks, what seems like an important endorsement may truly end up being a big, presidential curse. Obama correctly selected the North Carolina Tarheels to win it all in his first year as president in 2009, but hasn't picked the correct winner since.
UNC, Michigan State and -- a bit surprisingly -- Texas A&M round out rest of the president's final Final Four.
"Bill Self owes me,'' Obama said jokingly. He's taken Kansas previously in 2010 and 2011.
Kansas is also favored to win it all over Michigan State in ESPN's national bracket, which compiles thousands of users' picks into a single bracket.
The biggest upset the president has on the board is No. 13 Hawaii toppling No. 4 California. His complete bracket is below.
