Mitt Romney's March Madness bracket was astoundingly good

Mitt Romney's post-candidacy has been a strange time. He's going to fight Evander Holyfield, he's getting used to not having his every move constantly followed, and he's evidently become a better bracket expert than almost anyone on the planet.


Romney shared his bracket with the Huffington Post on Sunday, and it is absolutely absurd. Here it is, in all its glory. To wit: Mitt correctly picked 23 round of 64 games, 10 round of 32 games, and six Sweet 16 games. After the Sweet 16, he picked every Elite Eight, Final Four and national championship game winner correctly.

Mitt Romney's bracket ended up in the 99.9th percentile of the entire ESPN Tournament Challenge.

Barack Obama's bracket? Not so great. Heck, Romney even did better than every single likely 2016 Republican presidential hopeful.

For his own part, Romney only had one regret:

There's always the 2016 tournament, Mitt.
