Tuesday Night Fever
CHARLOTTE, NC — First Lady Michelle Obama spoke to the African American Caucus at the Democratic National Convention this morning. Prior to Ms. Obama’s speech, the audience heard from Democratic National Committee Vice Chair Donna Brazile and Virgie Rollins, chairwoman of the Black Caucus. The two women mocked the absence of racial diversity and dance skills they saw on display at last week’s Republican National Convention in Tampa.
“The other side, when you saw their African American delegates, they were a little bit lacking weren’t they?” Ms. Rollins said after noting that this year’s Democratic convention is hosting the largest delegation in the history of the Black Caucus.

President Obama noted that year was the first time Columbia admitted a coeducational class and that, at the time, “music was all about Michael and the moonwalk.”

Indeed, earlier this morning, his Twitter account blasted out the YouTube video below with the message, “At 82, I still got the dance moves!”
