While giving a speech at a fundraiser in Atherton, California on Thursday, President Obama had some kind words for California attorney general Kamala Harris, a potential gubernatorial candidate in 2014.
"She's brilliant and she's dedicated," the president said. "She's tough."
All very nice, supportive statements that Obama would likely make about any upcoming Democrat. But then he kept on talking.
"She also happens to be, by far, the best looking attorney general."
"It's true! C'mon," he added, to laughter from the crowd.
Perhaps not the best thing to say, Barack. Hard to imagine him saying that about, oh, any male attorney general. Some people are calling for Obama to undergo gender sensitivity training, which seems excessive, though he would probably do himself a favor by picking a candidate from this handy list and giving them a similar "compliment."
