When former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama were first getting to know singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, Michelle told her husband, "you need to spend more time with Bruce."
"I said, 'Well, why is that?'" Mr. Obama recalled asking her. "She says, 'You know, he understands all his failings and flaws as a man, and you don't seem to understand as well just exactly how messed up you are."
Mr. Obama replied, "You're right. No doubt."
