Obama apologizes to CA attorney general

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama has apologized to California's attorney general for commenting on her looks at a Democratic fundraiser.

White House press secretary Jay Carney says Obama apologized to Kamala Harris on Thursday night, after he returned from California, for the distraction his comment created. Carney says Obama did not want to diminish Harris' professional accomplishments and abilities.


At a Democratic fundraiser Thursday in Silicon Valley, Obama said Harris was "the best-looking attorney general." Obama also called her brilliant, dedicated and tough. Carney says the two are longtime friends.

Ok. I don't see anything wrong with Obama's remarks. Am I missing something or is this another case of PC gone wild?
