AUSTIN, Texas (CNN) – Community organizer, Illinois senator, and now - the latest Lone Star music sensation?
Maybe that's a stretch, but at a low-dollar fundraiser Thursday night following the CNN/Univision debate Obama shared the stage - and the mic - with Austin-based and nine-time Grammy award winning western swing band "Asleep at the Wheel."
After first giving standard remarks and then shaking hands in the crowd of a couple hundred, Obama ran back on stage to deliver a few thank-you's - but that wasn't all he had in store.
The Democratic candidate then not only sung a few bars, but broke out some of his finest dance moves in a twist during their eighties hit "Boogie Back to Texas."
And before he left the stage he pulled out a guaranteed crowd pleaser in this neck of the woods: the 'Hook 'em Horns,' the hand sign of the University of Texas at Austin Longhorns, formed by raising the index finger and pinky.
Needless to say, that was a hit.
