The President will be there. Then again, maybe he won’t.
Planners for the NCAA Final Four are preparing to go either way depending on what the Arkansas Razorbacks’ most visible fan chooses.
The latest version of President Clinton’s weekend plans appear to rule out a trip to Charlotte on Saturday. Secret Service agents have told police planners Clinton will skip the semifinal games.
“Monday is still up in the air, or any other day for that matter,” police spokeswoman Mickey Casey said Wednesday.
Clinton said on national television last Sunday he planned to attend Saturday’s game between Arkansas and Arizona.
If the First Family wants to catch the games, they will be handed some of the hottest sports tickets of the year.
“Basically, the NCAA has a reserve pool of tickets in case something happens,” said Kathryn Reith, spokeswoman for the NCAA entourage in Charlotte.
Security measures would be tightened if Clinton came to Charlotte, Reith said.
