4. Incredibly lovely.

They are such a handsome couple.

5. LO is doing a funny bit

on how they got looser as the dances and night progressed.

This is an inhuman tradition which should be dropped: making them dance in front of essentially millions, under bright lights. I don't know who but them could pull this off!

18. It never used to be that way. The balls were actual BALLS, and the President and spouse took the

dance floor--with EVERYONE ELSE. People would cut in, and everything! Even the non-dancers at least MINGLED...! There was actual food and booze and cakes and so forth...

Those days are gone, sadly....

Here's Ike and Mamie watching everyone else dance (guess they weren't rug-cutters):



Here are the Kennedys (and LBJ and quite a few other recognizable people) partying down IN the crowd:


Even Nixon got down:


It is only in recent years that they've started to separate the POTUS/FLOTUS and put them on a stage alone and not allow them to mix it up with the attendees.

21. I was thinking the same

thing last night. I remember Clinton's first inaugural, everyone danced briefly before they were whisked away to another ballroom. The President's home state usually 'sponsored' a ball. I think it all changed under dimson - like everything else.

26. There is footage of Nixon dancing w/Pat archived, but it's behind a pay wall.

Poor Nixon. He was creepy, wasn't he? Always so sweaty, awkward, nervous and over-eager...and when he wasn't that, he was brooding and evil and rather scary!

12. WOW

grossed me out then, and of course still does.

In gravid seriousness this memento illustrates a lot.
It shows how far we have come and what we overcame. I maintain that the fact we had this moron/dunce/asshat for a President was the main reason we as a country managed to elect our current President. Our vomitous frustration allowed this historic occurrence.

The re-election, decisive as it was even in the face of the best efforts of the dunces on all levels, is a wondrous thing that happened as a reward of President Obamas achievements and I'm so grateful and happy!

And what about a first lady who is not fried egg eye stoned on whatever it took to allow her to manage.

25. I showed a house one time that had a photo

of these 2 idiots dancing and looking at the camera. It was hanging on a wall in the kitchen. The buyers were my cousin and her husband. My cousin had ALS and was at the stage where she could barely speak and was on crutches. She tapped me on the shoulder, pointed toward the photo, then opened her mouth, stuck her tongue out and pointed her finger as if to say "gag me". Luckily, the owners weren't home because I let out a big guffaw. She died shortly after Obama took office in 2009.

11. I saw that on Facebook and came here to see if it had been posted

So beautiful and sweet, yet so regal.

I've been thinking all day how *unspeakably grateful* I am that it was the two of them in the spotlight today, and not the Romneys. They would have looked so smug and anointed... in comparison to the delightful video of the Obama family in the viewing stand today. I'm glad for today the way I am glad for food on the table and a roof over my head.

14. I just love this picture. I think it's touching and so natural.

Not the fake "I love you" googly eyes you get on The Bachelor or just about everywhere else.

27. If I didn't know better, I would think it was photoshopped

Sometimes real life just gives a photographer things that a graphic artist just couldn't even imagine.

30. Propaganda, pure and simple

Is this North Korea?

How many people were murdered by drones, that very day?
