If you're playing in this month's NCAA basketball tournament, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is rooting for you.

The California Democrat said on Thursday that while her first allegiance is to Georgetown University, the school her children and husband attended, she wants "everybody" to win.

"I have a lot of allegiances to many of those schools. I don't even want anybody to lose. I'm just rooting for everybody, especially the players," Pelosi told reporters when asked who she supported in the March Madness tournament. "I want them all to succeed, whatever team they're on. I'm crazy—I'm March Mad. I'm addicted to basketball. All sports, but college basketball, very exciting."

Spoken like a true politician.
