    Todd Akin is sorry he said that awful thing about women not being able to get pregnant in cases of "legitimate rape." Still, he's not about to resign his candidacy for U.S. Senate, despite calls from many in both parties for him to do so. "I'm not a quitter," the Republican from Missouri told Mike Huckabee on his radio show Monday. "We all make mistakes. The many people who supported me know that, when you make a mistake, what you need to do is say you're sorry." Still, rumors swirled Monday afternoon that the Congressional hopeful may, in fact, be moving towards dropping out. Nothing has been confirmed, though. President Obama also weighed in, calling the comments "offensive." Obama added that distinguishing between types of rape "doesn't make sense to the American people and certainly doesn't make sense to me."
