It only happens once every four years, but when college basketball season and presidential primaries align, I am one happy fan!

As a speechwriter, I love the political fray, the positioning, the personalities and the narrative.

As a Carolina girl, I love college hoops, the ACC, Tobacco Road rivalries and the UNC Tar Heels.

When those two passions bump up against one another, well, there’s just nothing finer. It’s like a double scoop of Salted Caramel, a BOGO sale on shoes, a Monty Python double feature.
