President Barack Obama likes what he sees from Pope Francis, who has called for a more humble Catholic Church that sides with the poor. Obama offered praise to the new pontiff in an interview with MSNBC's "Hardball" on Thursday, saying Francis has used the power of his office to remind people of their obligations to others and future generations. "I think Pope Francis is showing himself to be just an extraordinarily thoughtful, and soulful, messenger of peace and justice," Obama said.
