President Obama’s favorite actor is Paul Newman and his current favorite TV show is “Homeland,” a Showtime network program about a Marine returning from time as a POW who a CIA agent suspects might have been turned by al Qaeda.

Mr. Obama, in an interview with radio show host Enrique Santos, also said he picks out his own ties every day, said his favorite Latin singer is Marc Anthony, and said his favorite politician — besides himself — is another Illinoisan.


“Other than myself, actually, you know, if it’s anybody then I’ve got to choose Abraham Lincoln,” Mr. Obama told Ms. Santos in their phone interview.

Mr. Obama declined to say who his least favorite politician is.

“I’m not going to comment on that one,” he said.
