It’s all a matter of political perspective
During a speech at a DNC fundraising luncheon on Thursday, Obama broke from the heavy topic of climate change to give a “shout-out” to California Attorney General Kamala Harris, noting a couple of times that she is “easy on the eyes.”
“She’s brilliant and she’s dedicated, she’s tough,” Obama raved. “She also happens to be, by far, the best-looking Attorney General … It’s true! C’mon.”
Harris, 48, campaigned strenuously for Obama in 2012. Her name has been mentioned as a potential Supreme Court replacement when 80-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg retires.
Florida’s Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi, an award-winning former prosecutor, doesn’t need a “shout out.” She’s a steady intellectual who charms without the extravagant accolades. Bondi is the lead attorney general in the lawsuit seeking to overturn ObamaCare. In the lawsuit the State of Florida and 26 other states have argued that the individual mandate provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act violates the Constitution.
Bondi addressed the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa. During her first campaign in 2010, she handily defeated her Democrat opponent to become the Attorney General of the State of Florida by a 55% to 41% margin.
Regardless of what Obama says, keep your eye on Bondi.
