Italian leader says he’s paler than Obama

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who once described U.S. President Barack Obama as sun-tanned, revived the issue by saying he is paler.

I'm paler, Berlusconi, 72, noted for his tan, told The Guardian, a British newspaper, because it's been so long since I've been in the sun.

But, ever the politician, Berlusconi quickly added, He (Obama) is more handsome, younger and taller.
