The presidential rivals took time off from the campaign trail tonight to poke fun at themselves at the charity dinner tonight. The dinner raised $5 million for the Alfred E. Smith Foundation.

A highlight joke from each candidate:

  • Obama: “Mitt is his middle name. I wish I could use my middle name…”
  • Romney, poking fun at Obama’s relationship with Bill Clinton: “”I have my beautiful wife, Ann, he’s got Bill Clinton.”
