Cheering crowd and arena camera get Obamas to kiss
There’s nothing like a little booing to help the first couple
overcome their shyness.
President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, were taking in
Monday night’s USA Basketball exhibition game when the Verizon
Center’s ”Kiss Cam” turned its eye their way. Their image on the
huge arena screen prompted the crowd to cheer – a not-so-subtle
hint that Obama plant one on the first lady.
Both smiled, but Obama just put his arm around his wife as the
game resumed. That cautious reaction brought some boos.
Obama got a do-over later in the game when the Kiss Cam swung
back his way. This time he delivered, giving Mrs. Obama a big kiss
on the lips. And a peck on the forehead for good measure.
And the crowd roared.
