(CNN) - President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, found themselves Monday night in a spot where only few lovebirds have landed: the Kiss Cam at the Verizon Center in Washington.
The first couple appeared on the jumbo screen while sitting on the sidelines of the mens' USA National Team vs. Brazil basketball game.

As the crowd urged the couple to kiss, the president held his arm around the first lady and smiled, but didn't kiss - prompting a wave of boos from the crowd, according to pool reports.
But fans didn't leave entirely disappointed. Not long after the couple shied away from some affectionate display, reporters were brought back into the arena to watch as Obama and his wife re-appeared on the kiss cam, this time with the president going in for a full smooch.
Now that is some serious love<3...God Bless
Obama...you have to learn...just do what the people want and you will be fine. Get it the first time though....
That there is a lucky lady....
Awww! I love our first family! :)
Cherish these moments with your loved ones. I haven't seen my family in months due to the war.
Wait, what?!?! So Obama didn't do it live, then realized he missed a "photo-op", and then literally brought the reporters back in to film it in a redo and this makes the news?
Every chance he can get to divert the American people away from his dismal economic record, he'll do. If Obama spent half as much time trying to fix the economy that he spends playing golf and acting like a celebrity, Romney would be a footnote in this election.
Wait, what?!?! Obama is prompted to kiss his wife live and spontaneously and refuses shyly. He then realizes that he missed a "Photo-Op" and literally brought back in the press to cover his redo?!?! This makes news? Us silly humans with our priorities.
Yes, I am sure they thought no one was looking.
Yea Kiss Cam : )
I don,t like it
Well I guess it's refreshing to have at least on politician that is well-know for being a family man rather than the alternative.
Is this part of politics too
Get a room you two! Just kidding, it's reassuring to see our Commander in Chief isn't diddling his staff on his free time.
They make a nice couple and good parents for the kids.
We don't see nothing wrong with a kiss
Love it! Great story for a big smile.
Wow...what a "spontaneous" bit of affection for the cameras. Only took a few minutes of political calculation before "...reporters were brought back into the arena to watch..."
Guess it looked like a golden chance to distract from the fact that the latest trumped-up attacks on Romney have been debunked (by lib and con press members alike).
Talk about unimportant nonsense, this one tops the charts.
If they were both wearing braces and got stuck, that would be newsworthy.
AWWW – Isn't that lovely – Such a beautiful family and couple!!
