"He called her to apologize for the distraction created by his comments," said White House spokesman Jay Carney today, which is not the same as apologizing for the comments. Asked to clarify, Carney said President Obama said sorry to attorney general Kamala Harris "for the remark." He added that Obama "did not want in any way to diminish the attorney general's professional accomplishments or her capabilities" and "fully recognizes the challenges women continue to face in the workplace and that they should not be judged based on appearance." Old habits die hard, but hopefully this will stick.
