Hillary Clinton correctly predicts Sweet 16 in NCAA pool, donates winnings to charity
WASHINGTON, D.C. — What began as little more than a publicity stunt quickly morphed into a national celebration this past weekend, as President Hillary Clinton bucked incredible odds and correctly picked the Sweet 16 bracket in this year’s March Madness.
Clinton's interest in entering a bracket began when businessman Warren Buffett extended the same offer to the president that he did to all of his Berkshire employees. The offer: select a perfect Sweet 16, and receive $1 million dollars a year for the rest of your life.
When asked to describe how he felt about the remarkable turn of events, Buffett chuckled and said, “Hey, only a fool bets against the president right now. Guess we know what that makes me!”
President Clinton seemed more surprised than anyone when told she had won the contest: “Oh my, how did that happen?” When asked what her strategy had been in filling out the sheet, Clinton said, “Well, I wouldn’t exactly call it a strategy. I just sat down with my granddaughter Charlotte and let her point to which teams she liked!”
The president announced she will donate the money each year to a charity of her choice. The first recipient will be the National Black Justice Commission, America's leading national Black LGBT civil rights organization, which strives to combat racism and homophobia across the country.
