Obama, Romney Trade Lighthearted Jabs

Obama, Romney Trade Lighthearted Jabs, The president and his Republican rival draw plenty of laughs at a charity event in New York. Obama, Romney in (mostly) friendly duel of wits, President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney mocked themselves - and each other, and Joe Biden, and others - late Thursday during a joke-filled annual dinner that served as a truce of sorts in their hard-fought war for the White House.

Speaking first, Romney repeatedly underlined that he doesn't drink alcohol, quipping that he's usually invited to functions to be "the designated driver," and that Catholic Cardinal Dolan would signal his displeasure by turning Obama's wine into water - or the former Massachusetts governor's water into wine.

Addressing the crowd in the customary black tuxedo and white bow tie, Romney joked that "it's nice to finally relax and wear what Ann and I wear around the house."
