The Web video of a scantily clad actress pledging her affection for the Democratic presidential candidate has been a hit online. But it hasn't been a hit in the Obama household.
He says his six-year-old daughter Sasha has noticed news coverage of the video.
Obama says Sasha asked her mother about it. Obama says she told her mom something like -- quote -- "Daddy already has a wife."
The Illinois Democrat says he knows the video was meant to be lighthearted. But he wasn't smiling when asked about it in an interview with The Associated Press today.
He says he wishes people would think about what impact their actions have on kids and families. He adds that the impact of campaigning on a politician's wife and kids is part of what makes politics so difficult.
