Romney and Obama took a break from campaigning to trade some barbs at this year's Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner.
"Tonight's not about the disagreements Gov. Romney and I may have," Obama said. "It's what we have in common, beginning with our unusual names. Actually Mitt is his middle name. I wish I could use my middle name."
Romney joked about Big Bird: "In the spirit of Sesame Street, the President's remarks tonight are brought to you by the letter O and the number $16 trillion."
