ABC News reports on Kathleen Sebelius, President Obama’s health secretary, pressuring her boss into choosing her hometown Kansas Jayhawks to win it all at the NCAA tournament this year. Obama told ESPN’s Andy Katz Tuesday that he chose the Jayhawks this year because, “I want her to be happy when she’s working on these important issues here,” namely health care reform.

Sebelius gave Obama "a lot of grief" for picking the North Carolina Tar Heels to win the men’s national basketball championship in 2009.
