The 'Kiss-Cam' Moment: Obama Gets it Right the Second Time Around

To be fair, no one expects to have to kiss his or her partner while a camera broadcasts the images to thousands of people in a basketball arena. Not even the president of the United States and the first lady. 

Apparently not expecting it Monday night at the Verizon Center in Washinton, D.C., where they were watching a USA Olympic basketball exhibition game against Brazil, Obama had his arm around his wife, but they didn't kiss, which lead to boos from the crowd, according to the White House pool report.

The second time the couple was placed on the "kiss-cam," however, Obama leaned over and kissed his wife to cheers from the crowd and some cries of "four more years," according to the pool report.
