President Barack Obama campaigned at Norfolk State in Virginia on Tuesday, and he told a friendly crowd there that they owe him for lousing up his predictions in the NCAA brackets last spring.

"I had Missouri going pretty deep," Obama said. "But I want you to know I've got no hard feelings. Let's just say you owe me one."

What would be a fitting payback? How about, say, delivering Virginia for the Democrats in November?

Norfolk State was a No. 15 seed in the tournament, and beat second-seeded Missouri 86-84 in the second round.
