With the first lady some 3,000 miles away in Washington, President Obama today commented on the allure of California’s attorney general, Kamala Harris, arguing that she is “the best looking attorney general.”
I’m not sure what the competition is like, but judging by her photos, he may be right.
Obama was speaking at a fundraiser in Atherton, California for the Democratic National Committee. From the pool report:
Obama gave a shout-out to Rep. Mike Honda and to state Attorney General Kamala Harris, noting a couple of times that she is, objectively, easy on the eyes. “She’s brilliant and she’s dedicated, she’s tough… She also happens to be, by far, the best looking attorney general…. It’s true! C’mon.” The crowd laughed.
And here she is, newly crowned by the president as the Princess of Prosecutorial Pulchritude.
Well, the president has a good point, she’s quite charming. But, you know, imagine how it would stir up the sexism police if Bush said such a thing. Or, God forbid, Cheney.
