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.
