Barack And Michelle Obama’s First Dance of the Second Term After The Inauguration (Video)


The First Couple held their first dance of the second term at the Commander and Chief's inaugural ball to cap a day of celebrations joining members of the military as Obama launched his new term.

He wore a black suit and a white tie. According to the White House, she wore "a custom Jason Wu ruby colored chiffon and velvet gown with a handmade diamond embellished ring by jewelry designer Kimberly McDonald."

They danced in a graceful circle as Jennifer Hudson serenaded them with Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."

Earlier Obama called for a more inclusive America that rejects partisan rancor and embraces immigration reform, gay rights and the fight against climate change. In a speech after taking the oath of office, President Barack Obama urged Americans to reject partisan rancor and embrace cooperation.

Upstairs, about 4,500 wounded veterans and other military service members enjoyed a party of their own - a tradition started by President George W. Bush in 2005 as the country asked its volunteer military to shoulder the burden of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
