In an interview with Barbara Walters set to air tonight, Barack and Michelle Obama discussed the iconic "hug" photo that went viral on Election Night, after the President won re-election.
The picture was taken while they were campaigning in Iowa, Barack Obama said. Michelle Obama added: "Also, I hadn’t seen him in a while. You know, when you're campaigning, they have, we're two ships passing in the night, and the first time I saw him was when I walked on stage to greet him. And that’s my honey giving me a hug."
