    Wow it's getting where a guy can't even compliment a woman for her appearance, without people trying to castrate him for it. The irony is here that good looking people do get better jobs on average, rather than homely looking people. Just look a the News Medias and I mean all of them. The women co hosts or hosts are all very pretty or attractive. Sure there are a couple not so good looking(Greta,Cathy) I can only think of two, where as I can't even begin to list the pretty ones because there are so many. This is the world we live in and you just can't fault a guy or even a President for stating the obvious. Now if someone asked me who the prettiest News Woman was, I would have to say at this time Robin Mead. If someone were to ask me who the prettiest and the smartest was, I would have to say Rachael Maddox. These are just preferences and everybody should be allowed their thoughts...even the President. Let the man be human !
