Obama: Augusta Should Admit Women

President Obama thinks it's a bit silly that ladies aren't welcome at the Augusta Golf Club, which will host the upcoming Masters tournament. His press secretary Jay Carney told reporters Thursday, "His personal opinion is women should be admitted to the club." Carney couldn't speak to whether the President would play at a mens-only club, as they hadn't talked about it. The Augusta National Golf Club has not decided whether it will permit women at the Masters. Mitt Romney also said Thursday he thought women members should be admitted at Augusta.
