Party All Night At White House -- 2:30, 'It's a celebration!'
"What a party," Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said. The president and first lady were still dancing away when he and his wife, Loretta, left near 1 a.m. The party lasted past 3 a.m. Singer John Legend sent a Tweet, "2:30am at the White House. It's a celebration!"
Obama was dancing with his coat off still with white tie; Mrs. Obama was still wearing her Jason Wu gown.
Durbin said Janelle Monae performed. Around midnight a D.J. kicked in and tables were pushed aside in the East Room to make a bigger dance floor . . .
Malia and Sasha at one point on the packed dance floor where people were rocking out shoulder to shoulder. "They were dancing with their mom and dad."
