If I didn't know better, and I do, I'd almost think this was career suicide.

When did politicians become so feckless that they cannot deal with a simple compliment any more, yet can truly be ineffectual about true complaint?

I get the point that some will make, I just refute it - it always seems the wrong people rap on about the glass ceiling and I could almost think they want the attention.

Yeah. Hot as well as good looking.

This will just roll over Obama, he is a man as well as a president.

It is not as though he took his cigar to her.

So what's the etiquette for complimenting a woman on her looks? Seems a minefield to me...

It is very simple. You do not remark on one of your employee's looks, unless they ask you to.

Obama made a mistake. Shite happens to the best of us.

It was an innocent remark, and he has noted the implications and apologised.

Hardly Watergate.
