Obama the Hottie: President Gets Unusual Compliment in N.Y. Wings Joint

President Obama's trip to Buffalo, N.Y., wasn't all work and no play. On an impromptu stop at Duff's Famous Wings in Cheektowaga, he received the kind of compliment that it's safe to say presidents rarely hear -- at least when cameras are rolling.

"You're a hottie with a smokin' little body," Luann Haley told Obama during the unannounced stop Thursday at the renowned local wings joint. The president responded with a hug, Sheryl Stolberg of The New York Times wrote in a pool report for the rest of the media.

"She swooned and he said Michelle would be watching on television," Stolberg wrote. "That's all right,'' Haley said. "Hi Michelle, eat your heart out." Later, Haley said Obama had given her "a squeeze."

Haley, 45, works next door to the restaurant for a Department of Education contractor that collects money on defaulted student loans. She and her co-workers saw the Secret Service and rushed over to Duff's see what was going on.

The event was the president buying a snack. Obama ordered wings because, he said, "this is the wing capital." He ordered his "medium" but changed to half regular, half extra spicy on the advice of some in the crowd of 100 employees and guests. Mary DiGiacomo, who took his order, told him it would be on the house. "No, I've got to pay," he said. Total bill: $10.82.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
