Freudian Slip?

Heh. I couldn't resist.

The wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has insisted that she did not call him "pathetic" in a live television interview.

No, of course not. Slip of the tongue and all that.

Appearing on The View, a leading US morning talk show, Michelle Obama was asked by Barbara Walters whether she wanted her husband to be president.

Mrs Obama said "no", and was then heard to say: "He was sweet and pathetic."

Oops! Whoopie quickly had to step in and correct her, pointing out that Barack's not pathetic but empathetic.

Right, of course he is.
