WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama called California Attorney General Kamala Harris Thursday night to apologize for calling her "by far the best-looking attorney general in the country" during a fundraising trip, White House spokesman Jay Carney said.

"They are old friends, and good friends, and he did not in any way want to diminish the attorney general's accomplishments and capabilities," Carney said.Commentators from both sides of the aisle had objected to Obama's statement, which came during his remarks at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser on Thursday in Atherton, California.
