The NCAA college basketball tournament can be a tough time for Nancy Pelosi.
The House Democratic leader explained Thursday "you know I'm a Hoya fan, so I start with Georgetown...because many of my kids went there, including my husband."
But she represents a San Francisco-based congressional district, grew up in Baltimore, so...give her some time, she asked reporters at her weekly news conference.
"I have to study the brackets because once I asked President Clinton whether he's going to be for Arkansas or Georgetown; he said, well, I'm going to be with Arkansas. They really have a chance to win this year," she recalled.
"So I've got to take a look and see where everybody stands. But, you know, as it is, I have a lot of allegiances to many of those schools, and I just want -- well, I don't even want anybody to lose. I'm just rooting for everybody, especially the players."
The politician in her was taking over. "I want them all to succeed, whatever team they're on. I'm crazy -- I'm March mad. I'm addicted to basketball -- I mean, all sports, but college basketball, very exciting," Pelosi said.
