St. Patrick's Day At The White House

Once again, President Obama has extended that tradition of dyeing the Chicago River green to the White House by dyeing the fountain as well. Sort of. It looks like some of that luck of the Irish is coming through, at least for Obama. Earlier today, U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich publicly announced he would switch his health care vote from "Nay" to "Yea," a big get for the Democrats who are scrambling to reach that 216 vote margin to pass the bill. We'll see if the President's good luck also extends to his NCAA tournament picks.
