President Barack Obama became the latest Democratic leader to voice an opinion on whether Rep. Anthony Weiner should remain in office or leave, saying in an interview to air Tuesday that if he were the congressman I would resign.

In an interview with Ann Curry for the Today show, Obama said the congressman's exchanges of explicit photos and messages to at least six women through social media for the last three years were highly inappropriate and that he embarrassed himself. And while Obama leaves the decision to leave Congress to Weiner and his constituents, he made his own preference clear.

When you get to the point where, because of various personal distractions, you can't serve as effectively as you need to, at the time when people are worrying about jobs, and their mortgages, and paying the bills - then you should probably step back.
