"mutts like me"

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. -President elect Barack Obama responding to what type of dog he will get for the family upon entering the White House

Perhaps the funniest & most awkward statement of Barack Obama's speech today in Chicago.

Ha! I just watched that on the news.
Really is all so well in the world that all the news wants to focus on is what type of dog he's going to get?
