Obama hopes doesn’t step on wife’s toes at Balls
Barack and Michelle Obama will be making the rounds of the inaugural balls on Tuesday night after his swearing-in ceremony, and if tradition is any guide, they will take some time to dance the night away.
So USA Today asked President-elect Obama in an interview whether he had been practicing his dancing in between his work on his inaugural address.
He joked that his wife has been ribbing him a bit about his dancing.
“Michelle keeps knocking my dancing in public in ways that have hurt my feelings, so I probably should practice just ’cause she’ll tease me mercilessly if I step on her toes,” he said.
