Sexist?: President Obama Calls California’s Kamala Harris 'Best Looking Attorney General in America'

President Obama is taking some heat from the Left today after he complimented the looks of California’s female Attorney General Kamala Harris.

During a fundraiser, the president said, “…She is brilliant, and she is dedicated, and she is tough, and she is exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake. She also happens to be by far the best-looking attorney general in the country…”

Were his comments out of line?

Women’s Campaign Fund President Sam Bennett says they were. “Even someone as good on women’s issues as Obama has proven himself [that he] can make a mistake like this.”

According to Bennett, research has shown that any focus on a woman’s looks, even something as mild as hair and makeup, is “just as damaging electorally to women as out-and-out outrageous misogynistic statements.”

Dee Dee Benkie disagreed, however. “This is a beautiful woman. What’s wrong with saying that? I don’t understand what the big deal is.”
