Quote of the day: Obama on boxers vs. briefs

Us Magazine goes there, but the candidate won't.

Published February 27, 2008 9:23PM (EST)

"I don't answer those humiliating questions. But whichever one it is, I look good in 'em!"

-- Barack Obama, refusing to answer Us Magazine's question: "So, boxers or briefs? Bill Clinton said he wore boxers in a 1992 interview with MTV."

UPDATE: As astute War Room readers point out in letters, Bill Clinton actually told MTV "usually briefs." Also, Clinton's appearance on MTV was in 1994, not 1992 as Us Magazine stated, when he was already the President, not a candidate.
