Again I Say, How Could You Not Like This Guy On A Personal Level?

Via Kaus, here's Barack Obama on saggy pants:

I think people passing a law against people wearing sagging pants is a waste of time. ... [snip] Having said that, brothers should pull up their pants. You are walking by your mother, your grandmother, your underwear is showing. What's wrong with that? Come on. There are some issues that we face, that you don't have to pass a law, but that doesn't mean folks can't have some sense and some respect for other people and, you know, some people might not want to see your underwear -- I'm one of them.

Now who would you rather hear that from--Bill Bennett or Barack Obama? Better question: from whose lips would this have a more positive effect on the intended audience? Heck, even Bill Cosby couldn't pull that one off, and he tried.
