Obama Quote of the Day - for Patricia

From the president-elect's first press conference earlier today. The economy, jobs, Iran, were all dealt with. Then this.

With respect to the dog, this is a major issue. I think it's generated more interest on our Web site than just about anything.

We have — we have two criteria that have to be reconciled. One is that Malia is allergic, so it has to be hypoallergenic. There are a number of breeds that are hypoallergenic.

On the other hand, our preference would be to get a shelter dog, but, obviously, a lot of shelter dogs are mutts like me. So — so whether we're going to be able to balance those two things I think is a pressing issue on the Obama household.

The “mutts like me” line. Jesus, I love this man.

Mutts, huh? I guess if a poll could be taken of John Winger's (Bill Murray's) platoon in "Stripes", almost all of them probably voted for Obama.

We're most likely no longer 11-1, but I think we're probably still mutts that win most of the time.
