There’s so much awesomeness about the President and First Lady’s dance during the Inaugural Ball last night that we had to post the video here for you to see. On top of the two looking picture perfect, Barack Obama in a sleek tux and Michelle Obama in a red chiffon Jason Wu dress, the love between the two was nearly palpable. When the President took the stage to bring out the love of his life, he told the crowd:
“I’ve got a date with me here. She inspires me every day. She makes me a better man and a better President. The fact that she is so devoted to taking care of our troops and our military families is just one more sign of her extraordinary love and grace and strength. I’m just lucky to have her. I said at lunch today some may dispute the quality of the President, but nobody disputes the quality of the first lady.”
At that point, the crowd erupted as Michelle took the stage and Jennifer Hudson joined them to sing her own rendition of”Let’s Stay Together.” The Flotus and Potus essentially had the most intimate first dance you can have among a sea of media people holding cameras and cell phones capturing every moment. And when you check out the video below, you’ll see why Michelle Obama had to tweet this at the end of the night:
Just danced to “Let’s Stay Together” with the love of my life and the President of the United States. I’m so proud of Barack. –mo
So are we!
