President Barack Obama introduced his “date” and “dance partner,” Michelle Obama, at the Commander-in-Chief Ball last night in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The crowd roared their approval.
A crowd of hundreds of thousands of people, including warmly dressed women with American flags stuck in their hair, a smattering of celebrities and many Republicans, gathered yesterday to witness President Barack Obama take his second oath of office on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
The voice is as soulful as Al Green ’s, as smooth as Marvin Gaye ’s. Cee Lo Green’s CD out today, “The Lady Killer,” stakes an aggressive claim to take the title of the King of Soul away from the late Otis Redding .
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, interviewed at a Bloomberg/Washington Post breakfast at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, took issue with his party’s immigration platform, saying that tough policies are costing Republicans elections and presidential nominee Mitt Romney can help bridge a “gap” among Hispanic voters if he shares more of his personal story and beliefs.
Republican Mitt Romney said he would keep parts of President Barack Obama’s health care law, shifting his focus to independent voters as polls showed the president gained support after the Democratic convention.
