I can boogie better than McCain, brags Obama
In an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show via satellite from Miami, Obama stood before a crowd of cheering supporters and showed off his dance moves to James Brown’s big hit “Get Up Offa That Thing”.
After boogying to the music played from Ellen’s studio, Obama conceded that his wife Michelle is a better dancer.
“But I’m convinced I’m a better dancer than John McCain,” he said about his 72-year-old rival in the race for the White House.
Even though Obama appeared self confident as he shook his hips and moved to the beat, before the taping began he showed a bit of uncertainty.
“When I dance, don’t make fun of me,” he pleaded with the supporters crowded behind him as he stood to face the camera.
