Hi, Honey, I'm home from California and Kamala Harris!

Our very attractive president of the United States returned to D.C. the other day, where he attended a fundraiser. I know these political campaigns are expensive, but I am sure he had no idea how expensive.

While at one of the fundraisers, the very attractive president (right up there with JFK and Clinton) described the California Attorney General, Kamala Harris, as "by far, the best-looking" AG in America, while throwing in brilliant and all that other stuff guys say.

With all due respect, I randomly checked out some other state AG's (I'm throwing out the men here), and the president is not completely correct. Don't get me wrong about our AG. But he should consider the following other Attorneys General as well here.

Lisa Madigan, the attorney general of Illinois (his home state, and nice play on excluding her, Shakespeare), is certainly right up there.

Check out Florida AG Pam Bondi. She's awesome.

Martha Coakley, the AG in Massachusetts, is definitely attractive in a tough law enforcement sort of way.

Attorney General Lori Swanson of Minnesota is very, very attractive. Very. A true challenger to Kamala Harris.

Catherine Cortez Masto, the Nevada Attorney General, is also extremely attractive.

Pennsylvania's Attorney General, Kathleen Kane, is what the president might also describe as attractive. I would describe her as attractive in the extreme.

Oregon's Attorney General, Ellen Rosenblum, is also what I would call attractive. Also, a very nice person.

I have just listed all of the women currently holding the position of Attorney General in the United States. They are all attractive. Period. In fact, politicians in general tend to be attractive. There are very few people in politics who aren't attractive in one way or the other, intellectually or physically.

Now, the president went home to his very attractive non-Attorney General wife on Friday, and she is also an attorney as well.

My guess is the conversation went something like this:

"Hi, honey, I'm home!"

"Sit down."



"Baby, I..."

"Don't 'Baby' me, Mr. Hope and Change. I hope you got a change of clothes, 'cause you aren't sleeping here tonight."

Maybe he can hang out at the Clinton's tomorrow night.

I hear they have a nice sofa guys can sleep on.
