Sasha Obama's Friendly Reminder To Her Father On Election Night [View all]





A president surrounds himself with advisors well-versed in a variety of subjects -- and even when it comes to the basics of crowd management, it seems Barack Obama's covered.

In the midst of Tuesday's election night celebration in Chicago, Sasha Obama gave her dad a friendly reminder that endeared her to supporters in the McCormick Place convention center and beyond.

Apparently anxious to ensure the newly-reelected leader didn't ignore any of his fans, the 11-year-old nudged her dad to look at the people behind him. It was excellent advice: as soon as Obama turned his head, the crowd behind the podium started cheering and waving American flags even more excitedly than before.

YouTube user ohshawman posted a clip from NBC News's Election Night coverage showing the exchange.

It looks like Sasha made more than one good call on Election Night.



Great family
