The President and First Lady

By Carmen Stephens

WASHINGTON (AP/UTC)–President and First Lady Obama danced the night away as they scurried from one inaugural ball to the next, greeting supporters.  Not only is the President a businessman, but a family man, and he adores his wife and children.

While at the ball, President Obama asked a crowd of supporters and celebrities, “First of all, how good looking is my wife?”   Reports say he pulled her close for a slow dignified two-step to the song that marked the end of a long day of formal inaugural events and the two-year campaign that put them in the White House.

 Although the night was long and tiresome, the two remained upbeat and happy like high school sweethearts.  Both shared timeless memories as they smiled and laughed endlessly.

Unlike some who were nervous about their time to shine on the dance floor, the Obamas were enthusiastic, splitting up to dance with Marine Sgt. Elidio Guillen and Army Sgt. Margaret H. Herrera.
